My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Magic Cookie Bars

Can you believe I would have the nerve to post another cookie recipe after all the cookies we had over the holidays. Well, the devil made me do it! I bought Keebler graham crackers to make my Ultimate Cheese Cake with Lemon Blueberry Glaze, for Bible study and didn't know what to do with the remainder of the crackers. There on the back of the box was this amazing recipe. Just had to do it! You can hide these in a cookie tin in the refrigerator and they last longer.

  1. these are good, I step back in time this one.

  2. We make these every Christmas and absolutely love them! My daughter is working at the country club this year and brought home a bunch of cookies after a Christmas event. Even the country club had Magic Cookie Bars on their cookie tray! Thay were made with a very dark chocolate chip which really made them decadent.

  3. I love it when you put up an easy recipe that I can do. Thanks, I appreciate it, they sound delicious.

  4. These are positively sinful! I'm not even sure I could hide them well enough in the refrigerator!:) Thank you for your comments on my little blog, and I welcome you as a follower!

  5. I have a friend who makes these and sends them at Christmas. It always starts a big fight! I'll have to take your advice and make some and keep them hid! Carol
