Recipe for Mixed Nut Bars


Christmas cookies come in all shapes, sizes, and textures. Mixed Nut Bars are buttery, chewy, and crunchy; they’re especially appealing to nut lovers, which is almost everyone. Since they’re made in a large jelly-roll pan and cut into squares, they’re faster and easier than Christmas cookies that need to be shaped, rolled, or dropped.

Served on a holiday buffet table or as an addition to cookie trays, these fabulous cookies will be the first to go. They keep well for several weeks in an airtight container, so they can be made well ahead of the holidays.
