Cranberry Pecan Butterscotch Bars

Bar cookies are the easiest cookies to make.  With this recipe you mix the ingredients in a saucepan, the same pan that you melt the butter in.  So easy to assemble and the bars are moist and delicious.  My husband is the ultimate cookie lover.  I know when he says this is a ‘winning’ recipe that it is good. He is the best gauge of a cookie recipe.  You can be assured that this recipe has been given the blue ribbon by my cookie lover.
