I make the COOKIE BARS with the refrigerated cookie dough and they turn out PERFECT. I make them 2 - 3 times a week for my daughter's High School Varsity Softball team and they love them. The dough is easy to spread and bakes evenly.

I had my grandchild for the weekend and she was watching on the computer and seen this cookie and wanted to make for grandpa. She is 5 years old and loves to bake. She had so much fun and she added m&m and she said this was easy to do and fun. No time at all. Thank You

My sister had unexpected visitors while I was at her house. We looked to see what we could feed them. A quick pizza order and a big cookie in the oven and adults and kids were all happy. What a great backup dessert.
