Be the star of your Cookie Exchange with these buttery, melt-in-your-mouth crisp short bread bars glazed with Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Fruit Spread and Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread plus white chocolate drizzle!  Seriously one of the best cookies this holiday season!

Oh hi there!  Sorry, you caught me with my mouth full *blush*. I can’t help it.  These cookies or are they bars? Hmmm… they are a cookie texture but shaped like a bar.  Cookar? Barookie?  If you ask me I’d call them “FanFriggenTasticalAwesomegasmic-Get-In-My-Belly Treat”!  But honestly it doesn’t matter what you call them.  What matters is that you MAKE THESE!  OMG people!  These are seriously so good.  And such a simple recipe with just a few basic ingredients.  The star for me is the Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread as well as the Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Fruit Spread. It’s so amazing I can’t even begin to tell you!

Now I know what some of you may be thinking… “Jalapeno???  Oh that has to be hot!”  No it’s not.  It’s balanced out so beautifully by the honey and strawberries.  Yes it has some heat but it’s so good and on this cookie with the butter and white chocolate! Oh dear sweet baby Jesus people! But if you’re not adventurous then definitely get the Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Fruit Spread. And FYI… buy a few jars because you’re going to fall in love!  It’s just like how my Mom made hers!

Make these cookies and you’ll be the star of the cookie exchange!

Chocolate Chip Easter Basket Cookies

Besides getting a basket full of gum as a kid (I was never a big candy person), dying Easter eggs was one of my favorite things.  Seeing all those pretty colors, getting multi-colored finger tips and spending time with my siblings and Mom doing them was the best.  Now even though it’s just Mr. Fantabulous and I, I still dye eggs just because you have to for Easter.  It’s like a law or something.  Well this year I wanted to start a new family tradition since a new generation of Foodies are being raised out there.   You have no idea how much it thrills me when I hear from parents telling me how much their kids love me, my site and the recipes.  That they love being in the kitchen; learning to appreciate food. That to me is priceless.  I see it as a WIN-WIN.  One, we’re raising a new generation of future cooks and bakers and two, you’re creating memories and traditions with loved ones.

When I shared my Itsy Bitsy Spider cookies with you all, it literally blew up over night on the Internet.  It trended on Twitter for weeks, was one of the highest pinned recipes, shared millions of times.  Folks went nuts over this which makes my day.  Well with Easter approaching I wanted to come up with something like that.  I originally thought about painting Easter Eggs on cookies so when I made them they turned out really cool but they were pretty time consuming to make and a little more meticulous than the spider ones. So I had to think of what else symbolized Easter then it dawned on me.. Easter Baskets!!!
