Not too long ago I got an email alert from allrecipes.com about the best cookie bars they could find. So I scrolled down through all 23 and saw some that looked very good, and many of them I probably will try. But none of them looked as good and simple as one that I've been making for years. I have shared it with my children, who have shared it with their friends. These cookie brownies have even been made and shipped overseas, so I would imagine the recipe has been passed around Europe as well.
I got the recipe from Judy Kleinstub at Judy's Personal Touch at least 20 years ago when her shop was located inside World Sales on East 11th Street. Since that time, I haven't found a better brownie-type bar that can touch it.
