At Anne’s, every afternoon, a different type of cookie or square is set out for guests to enjoy while they watch the hummingbirds feed in the bird feeders or enjoy the glorious sunset on our deck. These bars could probably join the morning bread basket as a special treat, but we would typically serve these with coffee, tea and lemonade in the afternoon. Let us know what you think!
