7 Layer Cookies – The BEST Christmas Cookie EVER

Welcome to Day 3 of my 25 Days of Christmas! If you’re just joining us, remember to check out Day 1 and Day 2 for some fun holiday inspiration! Today, I want to tell you about my FAVORITE Christmas cookie. When I was growing up, my mom used to make these amazing 7 layer cookies for us. We looked forward to them every single year. Of course, she only ever made one pan, and they were usually the first things gone, as they were everyone’s favorite. You can imagine why.

Not technically a cookie, these ooey gooey bars of goodness are like a dream of what all holiday candy should be.

The wonderful thing about these bars is you can change out some of the ingredients if you wish. Don’t like butterscotch? Try peanut butter morsels or even pumpkin! Don’t like almonds? Try some chopped pecans or cashews!
