White Chocolate Sugar Cookie Bars

I don’t know from whence or where these came, only that they are exceptionally sweet and charming little treats. I took a seemingly plain sugar cookie bar recipe and dressed it up with white chocolate and walnuts then covered it in a pretty, pink, strawberry frosting. I searched far and wide for the origin of the cookie bar recipe only to trace it from blog to blog to blog…with no luck in finding the original.

The excessive sweetness of the white chocolate and the tartness of the berries balance each other out in a delicious, delectable way. If these were brownies I would describe them as being fudgy. They have the same texture with soft, dense, creamy middles, unless they’re overcooked, then they turn into cake. You can see around the edges how they are more cake-like.

I love these cold from the fridge! The same with brownies and sometimes cake. The flavors are more intense and the texture becomes like candy. Whatever way you chose to eat them is fine by me! Just please do.
