How To Make Recipe – Step By Step

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 8×8 baking pan with non stick spray.

TIP: For easy removal line the pan with foil or parchment paper. Be sure to spray foil to prevent sticking.

STEP 2: Take 1/2 cup of the cookie dough and set aside. Press the remaining cookie dough into the bottom of the prepared pan.

STEP 7: Return to oven and bake for 30 minutes, until the top is light golden brown.

How To Store

Once cooled store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. If staking on top of each other I recommend adding wax paper or parchment paper between the layers to prevent the bars from sticking together. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to serving.

Variations for Salted Caramel Bars With Pecans
