15 of Our Favorite Cookie Bar Recipes

Cookie bar recipes

What’s a cookie bar? They’re made with dough just like typical cookies, but that’s pressed into a 13×9 or sheet pan, baked, and cut into squares. They’re denser than a cake and take cookies to the next level. Magic cookie bars may be the most popular. But you can turn chocolate chip, sugar, and many other types of cookies into a bar cookie. Easy to make, here are 15 of our favorite cookie bar recipes.
