It’s cookie baking time once again and this year I am lucky enough to bake with the same special group of baker’s that I have baked with in the past! So excited!!!

This year's challenge will feature a minimum of four types of cookies, spread out over four weeks ~ all chosen from Saveur's Smart Cookies: Favorite Holiday Treats From Around the World feature. As in years past, each of us will choose our cookies at random, independently from one another. We may post the same cookies on the same weeks, or we may all post something different. In any case, it will be fun to see everyone's take on the same set of recipes. I know I'm looking forward to it!

Who's involved in this completely fabulous baking group? Here's a complete list:

Be sure to visit each of these blogs weekly and see what the other baking bloggers are up to!

For my first and very late cookie I decided to make the quickest one I could find. Lucky for me it was fast and delicious too…

In New Zealand, these shortbread bars are actually baked throughout the year, but the sheer extravagance of their double-layered topping,rich caramel and a crumbly butter streusel,makes them a perfect holiday treat.

This recipe uses butter. Lots and lots of rich delicious butter and did I mention they are fast to make?

More to come…

they went over huge at my husband's office too. Dangerous little things, though. Judy, check out the comment above yours on my site. It looks like they lifted all your content...crazy!

Yum! Caramel, oh caramel. I have trouble sharing anything with caramel. I need to make sure the family is all home when I make these or I'll be in serious trouble.

Boy your caramel crumb bars sure turned out well. I have these on my list too!

Could you do me a favor? Please update the link to my blog, BigBlackDog. The link you are using is to my old blog. Thanks!

Your crumb bars looks wonderful and I love the square instead of a rectangle cut!
