I wanted to come up with a bar that would be different from the usual. I came up with a sort of hybrid cake/cookie--hence cakies! They were a total hit at the dog park (with my human friends!) I also took them to the office--one friend sent me an email saying it was the best thing I've ever baked! Baked them for the family and they everyone loved them!

How To Make

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with foil for ease in removing baked bars. Crush cookies with rolling pin or food processor. Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter and mix with crushed cookies. Press down in pan to form crust. Bake 8-10 minutes. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl, add the sugar and lemon zest. Rub them together with your fingers until well mixed. This brings out the lemon flavor. Beat 3 tablespoons of the butter until creamy. Add the sugar/lemon mixture and beat until pale and fluffy. Add the egg, and beat well to mix. Add the vanilla, and beat on low. Mix in the flour mixture and the buttermilk in batches at low speed, beginning and ending with the flour.

    *I never have buttermilk. Put 1/2 tablespoon in a cup, add 1/3 cup milk. Let sit about 5 min. If you make a cup--fill a cup with 1 tablespoon, add 1 cup milk. (Can add to glaze, if desired). Drizzle cakies with glaze after cooling.
