  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4).
  2. To Make the Cookie Base
  3. Combine all cookie base ingredients in a food processor and process until dough is smooth. Press dough into a greased 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33-cm) pan. Wet your hands if dough is too sticky.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Do not turn off oven
  5. To Make the Streusel Topping
