Cherry Streusel Bars
We wanted a three-layer cookie bar without three times as much work.
Why This Recipe Works
To streamline these three-layer bars, we made one dough and used it for both the base and the streusel topping (for which we stirred in a couple of crunchy additions). We found that the best cherry flavor came from a mixture of frozen cherries and jarred cherry preserves. Luckily, that winning combination required no stovetop cooking time.
