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.
