My Butterscotch Oatmeal Brown Butter Cookie Bars are the perfect sweet treat to enjoy for any occasion.

It’s always so much fun baking with my kids in the summer.  We are crazy busy with swim team, summer camps and running around, but there’s always time for cookies!
I developed these cookie bars last week after I purchased something similar at a restaurant called C3 Kitchen.  Really cute little cafe in Scottsdale.  They were delicious and I was bound and determined to make my very own.
I enjoyed our version even better.  They are great for bringing to your summer parties and they look great packaged up for friends.  No matter how you decide to serve them, they will be enjoyed for sure :)
Happy baking!
