Personal Notes:
I call these Church Lady Bars because the recipe came from a woman at our church. They are really good and the Coffee adds great flavor; if you do not have instant coffee you can take ground coffee and grind it very fine to substitute. These are also nice because one baking cycle and all of the cookie bars are ready. They keep well if they aren't devoured right away!
