Cookies and Bars

Cookies (and bars or squares) are probably the most popular and commonly made dessert of all. They're easy to make, fit so perfectly
in our hands, almost always store at room temperature and come in endless flavors, shapes and textures. While chocolate chip cookies are probably at the top of the popularity list, there are other very popular cookie recipes, such as butter cookies, sugar cookies, oatmeal cookies and peanut butter cookies. Beyond these all-time favorites are so many other wonderful cookie recipes.

Bars are very similar to cookies, but are usually made in a pan, then cut into square or rectangular shapes. Whether you prefer your cookies and bars chewy or crunchy, sweet or tart, frosted or plain, I hope you find these cookie and bar recipes as delicious as I do. I am always on a quest for new great cookie and bar recipes, and will add them to this page as I find them.

Chocolate-Dipped Shortbread Sandwich Cookies
These sandwich cookies are a heavenly indulgence in more ways than one! The sandwich cookies are thin, buttery and flaky shortbread cookies that melt in your mouth. The cookies are topped with granulated sugar before baking, giving them a crispy outer coating. Once cooled, the cookies are filled with a lemon-flavored creamy filling, then dipped in your choice of chocolate or white chocolate (or both!). They're almost too delicious!
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars
Chocolate Oatmeal Bars lean on the healthier side and are made with oats, egg whites and brown sugar, and can be made with all-purpose or whole wheat flour (whole wheat flour tends to make them a little chewier as well as healthier). Semi-sweet chocolate morsels (regular or mini-size) add the perfect final sweet touch. Your favorite chopped nuts and/or mini marshmallows can also be added for additional flavor and flair.
