Bars are so much easier and quicker to make than cookies. Cookies can be finicky; they need perfect ratios of flour, sugar, and butter, or they will spread flat or won’t spread at all.

With bars, there is a lot more leeway. With sides on a pan, the dough can’t go anywhere, not to mention it saves all the time rolling, and chilling, and baking individual cookie sheets of dough.

These are just perfect for an afternoon snack with a cold glass of milk. And luckily, it only takes a few minutes to stir a batch together.

My boys absolutely love these and they’ve become a serious favorite over the years.

One hour max start to finish, even if you have to Google how to crack an egg first. What excuse do you have for not making them?
