Why Cookie Bars? ?

Cookie bars taste the same as cookies, but are thicker and usually larger.

Really, with every bite you’ll have more cookies in your mouth, who wouldn’t want one? ! The cookie bar still has a chewy, soft center and crisp edges, making it a must-have.

Whether your cookie of choice is chocolate chips, sugar, oatmeal, or Snickers, I have a variety of cookie bar recipes to satisfy your cookie craving. Make sure you see these cookie bar prompts before looking at the list…

Glass, Metal or Ceramic: When making cookie bars, you can skip making cookie dough balls, or the even more time-consuming rolling and punching of cookie shapes. You can also skip the repetitive process of baking different cookie pans. Cookie bars require baking all the dough at once in one pan. You can use different pans to make these cookies, just know that each type of scones will be different.

  • Glass and Ceramics: These two pots keep warm better than metal pots. If your recipe calls for a metal baking sheet, but you want to use a glass or ceramic baking sheet, you will usually need to lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees. Note that both types can shatter due to extreme temperature changes. Ceramic pots are usually chosen because they come in a wider variety of patterns and colors.
  • metal pan Usually it heats up faster. Dark metal pans bake faster than light metal pans. Pans/matte pans also cook food faster than glossy pans.

Lining the pot: No matter what type of pan you use, I recommend that you always line the pan with parchment paper or foil. This makes it easier to remove baked goods from the pan without bumping into each other when trying to cut and remove baked goods.

  • Make sure to leave extra lining so there is plenty of room for you to grab and lift.
  • Spray the pan with cooking spray before adding the parchment paper. This will help keep the paper in place as you press into the dough.
  • Be sure to let it cool before removing it from the pan.

double: Some recipes are designed for an 8×8 pan, others call for a 9×11 or 9×13. Most recipes can be doubled for extra treats, regardless of pan size.

  • An 8×8 pan recipe can be doubled and baked in a 9×13 pan
  • Any recipe can be doubled and pressed half into the pan you’re making now and half into the pan you want to freeze later. (See individual recipes for freezing instructions.)

many recipe calls softened butter. Our post on how to soften butter quickly can give you tips for doing so.
