Raising the Bar: Bar Cookies

This recipe is new to me and couldn't be easier for a delicious bar cookie. Brad walked in as they were coming out of the oven and said, "It smells just like Christmas!"

Line a 15x10" pyrex baking dish with foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray. Then line the pan with graham crackers. Break them to fit the edges, and cover the bottom. Sprinkle about 3 cups of miniature marshmallows over the graham crackers.


In a saucepan, combine:
3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon

Cook until sugar is dissolved. Stir in 1 t. vanilla. Pour mixture over the marshmallows.


Sprinkle with 1 cup of sliced almonds and 1 cup of coconut. Bake for 15 minutes at 350.


Let cool. Cut into squares, then cut squares in half diagonally.

You had me with these right up to the coconut -- not a fan. As chief guru of the cookie world - any thoughts on a susbstitute for the coconut?

As usual, your energy and work ethic have me in awe!

Hi Palma

Thank you for sharing your cookie recipes. I made several that you posted last Christmas that were a hit.

This recipe looks yummy, did you mean to say "couldn't be easier...."?

Will give this one a try. Thanks again.


Linda, Yes, I fixed "couldn't".

Judy, how about the almonds and a few chocolate chips. Or TOFFEE chips (Heath)!!!
Let me know if you try them!

These are the easiest, gooiest, yummiest cookies. Thanks Palma for sharing.
