Hi Nikki!    I think and voted that a bar is a cookie. Cookies come in different shapes like people do ergo bars(a different shape) are cookies. After all bars and cookies are both baked in the oven usually. You have a very debatable question here but it all comes down to taste and I don't know anybody who does not like a cookie or two or three.

   Hi NIKKi;  YES; thy) bars) are  A COOKIE! For years  THE ONLY bar cookie, I  baked was  BROWNIES.. .But now I  find them ( bars)  easier to bake & have less cleanup; only one pan  instead  of 3 sheets; easier to pkg & freeze for future enjoyment. Drop Cookies seem to disappear  too rapidlyCry; too easyto o pp 5 OR 6 "on- the- run".   And But bars are easier to control portionsize (one piece ONLY!Yell They pkg & freeze easily for future enjoyemntand aremostly/usually yummy topped w/ "realwhipped cream"OR ice cream
They don't do well in a cookie jar.Tongue out  I i can no longer roll out dough for cutting out cookie shapes; either drops or bars are easier for me,now In summer tmie,I either micro bake bars or bake drops( cook in less time (preferable /nice on a hot day).

Nope!  A bar cookie and a flat cookie are related but not the same thing. 
A denim culotte is a skirt.  A sequined floor-length formal is  a skirt .... they are related but not the same thing.
The  big fur-ball laying across my arms is a cat .... a tiger is a cat .... related but not the same thing.

hee hee -- I'd sure rather have a cookie with me right  now instead of  this cat.

I think a bar is a cooky.  Bars and cookies are held in the hand and are individual sevings of a sweet or dessert.

Ann, I totally agree with you about the clean up.  So much easier to wash a 13X9 pan than several cookie sheets.  Truth be told both are pretty easy using parchment paper almost just a swipe with a wash rag and you're done.  It is the scooping out that takes the time, just dump it all in a pan and bake.  None of this scoop, plop, scoop, plop, scoop, plop...24,48,  or more times.
I will admit that I do make "cookies" when my grandson wants to make cookies. (He sure has me wrapped around his finger!)

I vote for a cookie.  They are basically in the same section in most cookbooks!  They may be separated but under the same general heading.

Of course a bar is a cookie.  Cookies come in different shapes.  Look at a cookie cookbook and it usually divides them into categories like drop, bar, refrigerated, shaped, pressed.  Bars are good when you want to make cookies but don't have a whole lot of time.

I think a bar is a cookie.  You can use the same dough, it's just in a different shape.
