I don't make sweets very often but these cookie bars seemed to have lots of things we all like. I followed the recipe as written but it seemed dry while mixing the ingredients. I baked it anyway and though the results taste good they are definitely a little drier than we like. As I don't bake things like this normally I am not sure what to recommend or add. Rating - 4 for taste but only 3 for overall result. Read More

For grandkids coming in a few days. I sprinkled mini M&M’s on top and pressed them in. SO pretty! Made a double batch and put in my old 10” X 15” pan. Looks about 1” thick. I only put 2 C of flour and 1 1/2 cup of mixture of Quick and Old Fashioned oatmeal. Read More

I added an extra egg and left out the peanut butter because when I was mixing it before I added the extra egg it was super dry. I didn't add the PB partly because I was on a time crunch and partly because I thought it would dry it out even more. And they ended up tasting phenomenal!! Read More

After reading some of the reviews, I made this recipe with an extra egg and didn't think they were too dry. The batter is certainly thick, though. Excellent recipe, and easy to make. Read More

I used milk chocolate chips and butterscotch because I had them on hand. Good recipe. Bonus is it calls for ingredients you usually have on hand. Only change I made was using a little more vanilla extract. Read More
