I don’t make bar cookies often enough. These were so simple to put together and completely delicious.
And if you’re
impatient like me short on time, you don’t even have to wait for the butter to soften, because you melt it instead. Awesome!
The word “chewies” really is the perfect thing to describe these beauties. They were soft and chewy and disappeared in a flash.
Seeing how easy these were to put together has me wanting to try new bar cookie recipes. Do you have any favorites? Share ’em in the comments below.
