    Here is another Christmas cookie/bar that is very popular this time of year:

    Seven Layer Magic Bars

    Go here for a video:

    OR here is the recipe:

    Makes about 36
    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
    1 cup butterscotch flavored chips
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
    1 cup chopped pecans

    Preheat oven to 350°, (325° for glass dish). Line a 13×9-inch baking pan with a sheet of foil, making sure to cover the sites well. Place the butter in the baking pan and melt it in the oven. Sprinkle crumbs over butter; pour condensed milk evenly on top of crumbs. Top with remaining ingredients in order listed; press down firmly with fork. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Chill if desired. Cut into bars. Store covered at room temperature.

    I think Mexican/Russian Wedding Cookies ARE shortbread cookies. Shortbread are just not rolled in xxx sugar after baking.

    I would not put any white choc in the dough, but maybe dip a baked shortbread cookie half-way into melted white choc. I would think dried cranberries are fine, but I would not use fresh ones.
