We just had family here visiting from my home state of Texas and I figured it was the perfect time to experiment with a new recipe idea I had — these French Toast Cookie Bars.

I have been thinking of these for weeks and finally had a good excuse to make them! I seriously didn’t need a giant 9×13 pan filled with thick French Toast Cookie Bars staring at me night and day.

I started with a big thick layer of a maple cinnamon sugar cookie. It’s chewy and the edges are slightly crispy. It’s full of flavor and easy to whip up since it uses melted butter.

Then I slathered on a nice thick layer of cream cheese frosting. I considered adding cinnamon to the frosting as well, but with cinnamon in the cookie and cereal on top…I think it was best to keep the cream cheese frosting pure.
