    Amy Skinner from Spencer, IN

    I made these with 5 and 6 year olds. They just thought they were so big and was so proud of them they served everyone. They really felt like they did something and can't wait to bake something else!

    Great BBQ Dessert

    Eileen Dunne from EDISON, NJ

    Was having a group of friends over for a BBQ prior to my soldier departing for his next deployment overseas. These bars were easy to make-a great accompaniement to the fresh fruit bowl--and was the perfect ending to my soldier's last home-cooked meal for a long time.

    Almost to easy Cookie bars

    nikki pals from PALATINE, IL

    Bar cookies are my go to cookie(let's be honest who likes rolling out cookie dough?) I have made the Toll House Cookies for %&* years (not giving my age away!) and have always loved the results. As a bar cookie they are great! Well the refrigerated dough makes these even easier. I do miss the home made taste but in a "gotta have something quick emergency" these are wonderful.

    Variation of Cookie Bars

    Shanna Warrenfeltz from HAGERSTOWN, MD

    This is simple and easy. One thing I've done to make them a little more special is use a bag of chocolate chips, and spread over bars about 2 minutes before they are done baking. Then, use a spatula, and spread the melted chips over the bars like icing. Once the chocolate hardens again, cut and serve. Everyone loves them!

    I had a event to attend and very little time to bake so I hopped on you sight and voila there it was...Now sweat. They were an absolute hit at the event and my friends had a great laugh. I am noted as making everything from scratch and make my friend envious. This was something they could do as well. Thanks again. Oh, I think I found some more people to join in on your sight. That's how impressed they were.

    Good Title

    elizabeth biggs from

    Many children and adults enjoy Chocolate Cookie Cake. This is a quick way to create a favorite and it tastes like it is homemade.

    Shaped works too!

    Mona Blake from DAVENPORT, IA

    If you allow the dough to soften for about 20 minutes at room temperature, you can place the dough in a greased, shaped pan!

    Not as good as homemade

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    There is no way that packaged cookie dough has the taste--and love--of homemade. It is slightly faster than measuring ingredients, but the flavor is just ok.

    Quice & Easy


    I remembered seeing this recipe when my friend called and told me she would be dropping with her children later in the day. I popped these in the oven while I straightened my house for guests. By the time my guests arrived, I had a clean house, coffee, milk, and a whole batch of warm cookies!
