Do you have a favorite cookie bar? I find it hard to choose just one! We love cookie bars because they take less time than traditional cookies. Once the batter is made, they go into a pan and bake all at once!

There is no dealing with multiple batches and five cookies sheets. You just put one pan in the oven and come back to a huge dish of delicious cookie bars. 

Cookie Bar FAQs

How many bars can you get out of a 9×13 pan?

Depending on how big you cut your bars, you can get anywhere from 12 to 36 cookie bars out of one 9 x 13 pan.

How do you know when a cookie bar is done?

The easiest way to check if a cookie bar is done is by inserting a clean toothpick into the center of the cookie bars. If it comes out clean, it is done. If it comes out with bits of batter stuck to it, it still needs more time to cook. 

Keep in mind that if you stick your toothpick into a chocolate chip, it will always come out dirty. So it is best to avoid any chocolate morsels when checking for doneness.

If you don’t have a toothpick, you can also use the tines of a fork. But again, watch out for chocolate chips!
