Tips For Making The Best Cookie Bars

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