I used the 9 X 13 once i saw how much oatmeal you put in them. So use that size! Other than that these are the best bar cookies i've ever had, it got a girl to like me! yeah!

I thought these bars were too thick made in a 9 inch square pan. If I made them again, I would use a 9 x 13 inch pan.

This recipe is PERFECT and written just the way they are supposed to be baked in my opinion. I even doubled the recipe and baked them in a 15x10. In a 9x9 square they bake beautifully. Co...

13 x 9 2c choc chips and 1 c butterscotch still very rich, would reduce again

Yes, it should be a 9x13 pan! I think next time, I'll stay with the 8" square (who has ever heard of a 9" square??) and leave the oatmeal mixture at the same proporation. However, I'd reduce t...

quite a nice treat!

I think these bars are perfect as written. They are quite thick and yes, there is a lot of topping - but they taste awesome. Exactly the sweet, rich treat I was looking for.
