These patriotic red, white & blue cookie bars are the perfect festive recipe to make with the kids! Scroll down for the easy cookie bar recipe!
Today is the official last day of school! In just a few days Robert will be graduating from middle school, and Joseph is starting his summer school pre-k program. Last year at this time we were preparing to move for the first of three times in less than five months. To say it was exhausting is an understatement.
To kick off the long Memorial Day weekend and the beginning of what I hope will be a fun and relaxing summer I decided to make these red white and blue cookie bars.
I try to avoid baking too much during the summer but these cookie bars are pretty easy to prep and make and Joseph and Olivia love to help cook! Last time they helped me make this mermaid cookie dip, these cake mix strawberry cookies and stay tuned because I promised them they’d help me make energy balls!
