timesaving tips to streamline recipes

  • This recipe is a pretty great time-saver in itself. If you make this a day ahead, be sure to store baked cookies in an airtight container with a slice of apple or bread in it to retain cookie softness.
  • This makes a fun gift  – just put dry ingredients in a mason jar and add a tag with the wet ingredients and instructions.

We hope you enjoy this simple, time-saving recipe.

I love this recipe! I used a sugar free yellow cake mix for my husband who can't have sugar. I also added an extra egg and a 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips and baked it in a 9x13 baking dish for 20 minutes. The cookie bars came out perfect!!!! Thanks again!!!!
