Tips For Making The Best Cookie Bars

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie bar.
  5. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  6. Don’t overtake your cookie bars.  Bars will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  7. Let cookies cool completely before cutting into squares and storing in containers. This will keep their crispness.
  8. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

  • 21 ounce package sugar cookie mix I used Betty Crocker
  • 17.5 ounce package chocolate chunk cookie mix
  • 17.5 ounce package chocolate chip cookie mix
  • 17.5 ounce package peanut butter cookie mix
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with parchment paper.

  2. Prepare each cookie dough mix according to package direction in separate bowls. With a cookie scoop, start with the sugar cookie dough as the first layer. Scoop dough into bottom of dish then with greased hands, press down evenly. Scoop chocolate cookie dough over sugar cookie dough, press gently and evenly. Proceed with chocolate chip cookie dough then peanut butter cookie dough pressing gently and evenly. Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until baked through. Remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting into squares.  You may also use your favorite homemade cookie dough for each layer.

    I tried this recipe in a regular 9×13 pan and the cookies grew tall like a cake and even spilled over the edges. It also never got done enough in the middle. Is there something I should have done differently? Thanks!
