Cooky Recipe Number 13: Dream Bars

Saturday, August 25, 2012

I baked these last Sunday. Shortbread crust with almond coconut topping. They were definitely a hit with the model car guys and at my husband's workplace.
Last week, when I met up with my BFF to thank her for watching the cats while we were gone, I gave her a souvenir from DisneyWorld.

Lots of errands today. Looking forward to a 9 mile long run tomorrow with my new Garmin 410.

    Oh, that sounds wonderful! 9 mile runs! I'm sure your little furry babies are thankful you are back again after a full week away. It's so nice of your friend to watch them for you - I'm sure they are thankful for the goodies. hehe Hope you had a wonderful time!

    9 miles in fantastic! I opted out of my long run because my son was sick and he didn't want me too. Can't wait to get a super long one in next weekend.

    Yummy looking bars! Hope you like your Garmin. I have that same one and I love it. I like the fact that it has a Sport Mode to switch from running/biking. Enjoy!

    Did you figure out the calories? Or do they not have any because they ate part of a family recipe? emoticon

    I remember those bars, but they never looked that good. You clearly have a way with cookies!
The Pooh's are adorable. I still have mine that I got for my 6th birthday. He doesn't quite look that good. Maybe if I sit him up against a cocktail...
Have a fun time with your new toy!

    Woohoo! You finally broke down & got a garmin! Hope you like it as much as I like mine. Just finished up refueling at brunch after my 9 mile run this morning.

Of course the cookies are looking mighty fine bout now . . . Good thing they were across the country!
