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!

Cinnamon Pecan Streusel Coffee Cake Cookies

A while back I saw a recipe on Pinterest (isn’t that like the greatest thing ever?!) for coffee cake cookies.  Like most of you, I saved the recipe and stored it away.  The other day, while working on some test recipes I happened to come across this recipe again.  It intrigued me (or it could have been the fact that my stomach was growling and I was starving) – dunno. Anyway, I got to putting this together but with my own spin on it.  I changed the ingredients around, added this, took out that and mixed it all about. Okay queue hokey pokey *yeah, that’ll be stuck in your head all day now* You’re welcome <curtsey>

What came out of my oven were these glorious little bites of heaven!  These taste almost exactly like my Cinnamon Streusel Pecan Coffee Cake but in a cookie form.  That cake is one of my top 5 favorites easily.  The true test was Mr. Fantabulous, obviously.  Thank GOD that man is willing to try anything I put on a plate in front of him.  He truly is the best food critic I know. He’s brutally honest – which, being in this business, you need.  He RAVED over these things and then said “You do realize that you will forever have to make these, right??? LOL  Yes dear!

These cookies are so tender and soft.  I’m telling you the next time you have brunch, or the in-laws over, cards party, lunch with the girls or just because it’s Tuesday, MAKE THESE!
