When any of the Harris girls find a new recipe they are quick to share the good news. Jill made these cookies, sent me an e-mail and said they were her new favorite cookie. Amber made them and raved about them. She even told Candise that it just might be worth being sick one day to experience these cookies (Candise has just discovered that gluten containing foods make her quite ill).
With so many good reviews I had to make them. Yes, they are delicious. They are a cookie form of the ever favorite 7 Layer Bar, Magic Cookie Bar or as we called them Hello Dollies. They are full of yummy ingredients and they contain no eggs so the dough is fair game--and it is yummy. Enjoy! These cookies are inspired by a recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Mel's Kitchen Cafe
