Cookie Bars

I have trouble finding the energy to make cookies.  I have never enjoyed taking batches out and putting them back in over and over and over again.  Lucky for my kids I found making cookie bars to be much easier and is now pretty much the only way I make cookies.

It is simple!  Take your favorite cookie recipe that makes approximately 5 dozen cookies, follow the directions but add 1/4 cup cornstarch to the dry ingredients (this helps keep the cookies soft).  Press dough into a greased 15×10 inch jelly-roll pan.  Bake at 375 degrees for 20 mins.

    Thanks! I have baked cookie dough in a cookie sheet before to make bar cookies, and wasn't that happy with the results. I am excited to try this!

    Question: Are we supposed to add an additional 1/4 cup of cornstarch along with the original amount of flour called for in the recipe….or remove 1/4 cup of flour and replace it with the cornstarch? Thanks!
