Six Bar Cookie Recipes to Enjoy for Quick and Easy Baking!

There is no doubt, summer is here along with the busy times you and your family can enjoy! And if one thing holds true, busy times call for easy to make (and serve!) recipes! But we still need cookies, delicious cookies, homemade cookies. Cookies you will be proud to serve, and for the busy times ahead, bar cookies are the way to go! Come and take a look...

One of our latest favorites, Easy Saucepan Salted Pecan Squares they only sound difficult. Requiring only one saucepan for mixing and one baking pan later you will have a platter of cookies that everyone will enjoy. 

Three Ingredient Nutella Brownies!  With over 1400 pageviews this is a reader's favorite! But just so you know, everyone and anyone who loves Nutella will enjoy these easy to make brownies...

Whole Wheat Jam Crumble Bars. The perfect cookie to offer everyone their favorite flavor in a crumble bar. Just pick their favorite flavor of jam...and get baking. We have enjoyed these with strawberry jam, peach jam, and apricot jam. And I have to say, raspberry jam would also be great!

Sugar and Spice Snickerdoodle Bars can't be beat. Snickerdoodle delicious in a simple to make bar. Just cut and serve! Perfect with other cookies offered as part of a larger cookie platter or alone as the only cookie. 

Date and Walnut Bars. A timeless classic of two great flavors together, dates and walnuts. These cookie bars are chewy and delicious. 

Sweet and Salty Cashew Blondies. This is not a sweet cookie. Delicious yes, but also it is perfect for those that do not like sweet desserts or cookies. Think a chewy Lorna Doone with cashews in cookie bar form...

  4. Goodness! I don’t know which ones to start with! I’m thinking the date/walnut bars or the blondies! Both sound so good! Actually they all sound good, but I might have the ingredients for those other two!
