When I think of Christmas cookies, I think of bright colors and fussiness.
And then I think of Matrimonial Bars.
Made with oatmeal and dates (and butter and sugar), they probably don’t appear in any Christmas cookie cookbooks. But in my family (the Canadian side) we always and only make them at the holidays.
Bonus: They’re quick, easy and irresistible.
