Caramel Bars
These are good. A nice chewy bar cookie. I, like others, doubled the crust. I ended up not using 1/4 of the doubled mixture, but that's just me. I also used one 14 oz. package of caramels (I really like caramel) instead of 32. It was somewhere around 50+ caramels. I also didn't use double the amount of butter. I ended up using 1 cup in total instead of 1 1/2 cups. That again may be a personal preference but I didn't want the base to get too greasy. All in all, I didn't change the recipe (just used more of it) and they turned out great. If you were to make as directed, I would opt for an 8x8 pan instead of a 9x13 to make sure you have enough base. I will definitely make again. Quick and easy.

Pecan Praline Cookies
I'm rating this based on looks alone. I just took my stuff out of the oven and they look PERFECT. My mom has made these before, so I know what they taste like. I followed this recipe - not sure what her recipe is like. I didn't mix in pecans - simply because they're really not my favorite. Instead, I sprinkled the top (before baking) with sliced almonds. They look beautiful. I also lined my cookie sheet with parchment paper. Both cleanup and cutting should be a cinch. I was worried that I would have sogginess or pooling butter or other problems that people had. I melted my butter and brown sugar on medium heat until the butter had melted (I kept stirring it during this time). Then I turned it on high until it came to a boil. I could tell the syrup was ready because it coated my spatula. I think that's the best way to test it. When it coats your silicone spoon/spatula. Before I boiled it, the butter wouldn't even let it stick to my spatula. So I could tell once the butter and sugar came together by the sticking. Anyway. It worked for me! I'm very excited to try it!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars
These were good. I doubled the recipe and put in a 9x13 lined with parchment paper. I may try and cut down on the butter by 1/4 cup next time. Mine had an almost greasy taste (especially around the edges). And I will probably add a little more jam as it seemed to soak into the base a little. But that is my personal preference. I will definitely be making these again and will experiment with all different kinds of filling. I'm sure these would make excellent oatmeal carmelitas.
