Expert Tips

  • Add grated orange zest to the cookie dough for a bright flavor twist.
  • We tested this easy cookie bar baked in a 9-inch pan with a chopped white chocolate bar. Substitute same measurement amount of white vanilla baking chips for chopped white chocolate, if desired.
  • Try adding ground ginger instead of ground cinnamon to the cookie dough for a different spice.
