Carol Sexton, of East Butler, said this nutty, chocolaty cookie bar is the one most requested when she does her Christmas baking or whips up batches of cookies for charitable events. Sexton said using real vanilla and butter and other high-quality ingredients is imperative in turning out perfect cookies every time.
