Lazy Cake Mix Cookie Bars from Table for Seven

These have been flying around Pinterest for a loongg time and I finally decided to give them whirl a few weeks ago. You see, my oldest son is a total dessert fanatic (wonder where he gets that from?) and was asking to give me a hand baking something up.

These popped in my head to glad they did!

They were so easy to make (he actually did the majority of the work) and everything needed was sitting nicely in my kitchen.

Which means you have to make them. It’s a rule. #Truth.
