Christmas Cookie Bars

Christmas Cookie Bars

I cannot believe that this week is Christmas. I think I am completely prepared for it. Well besides a few small things that I need to grab. I am excited that we get to spend Christmas in our new house this year. We are so use to traveling for Christmas that it kind of becomes habit. This year will be nice.
Today in church they had a wonderful program for sacrament meeting. Full of great messages of the birth of Christ/true meaning of Christmas. It was a great reminder who we should really be celebrating as we gather together as family and friends. #Saviorisborn #sharethegift

Here is a great video to help us all get in the true Spirit of Christmas!

Of course as we are celebrating the birth of Christ this Christmas we will all be gathered among lots of loved ones. There is always lot of food and treats involved when this happens. If you are looking for a great treat to share with your loved ones this year, or to spread the cheer to your neighbors these Christmas cookies bars are great! Super easy to make as well. Enjoy! Merry Christmas!
