PW’s Cookie Spreads

This simple bar type cookie is soft and delicious, with a prominent brown sugar flavor.  It would be a great recipe to make with kids because it is so easy.  They would also make a terrific last minute dessert.

    Those look really good, and easy. Last night I made a PW recipe, for the baked fudge. It was a bit too sweet. I think I would lower the sugar next time, and I definitely have a sweet tooth.
    Actually, now that I think about it, I made two PW recipes last night because we also had the crash potatoes recipe with dinner. Those were good. My red potatoes were a bit big, so they did take a bit longer in the oven.

      I have the baked fudge recipe saved to make soon too! I can’t wait! I’ll lower the amt. of sugar – thanks!
      I’ve made the crash potatoes as well and I don’t think I boiled them long enough because they were a little hard to mash. I hope to try them again soon!
      I just the Pioneer Woman’s site!
