Expert Tips

This recipe was one of fifteen winners in the 2007 Mix It Up with Betty! Cookie Mix Recipe Contest. More than $10,000 was awarded!

Use oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mix instead of the oatmeal cookie mix if you’d prefer not to have the cinnamon flavor.

No tart pan? Use a 13x9-inch pan and cut into squares instead of wedges.
