Raspberry Dream Bars!

Raspberry Dream Bars Plate

I love sweets, but this cookie bar takes the cake...uh, cookie. Whatever, you know what I mean! It's dreamy, light, and perfect to take to a new mom, a potluck, or serve at a party! This recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. I can't make them unless I know lots of people will be around to eat them. No self-control with these delicious Raspberry Dream Bars! Enjoy!
