Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If using 21-oz pouch Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix, no changes to ingredient amounts or pan size. Bake 24 to 26 minutes. Makes 24 bars.
  • tip 2
    The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. To easily line the bottom of the pan, tip upside down and form foil around bottom and sides. Flip pan over, and place foil insert inside pan for a perfect fit! When it's time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bar with the foil out of the pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
  • tip 3
    Drizzle melted white or dark chocolate on bars for some added flair.
  • tip 4
    Customize this cookie bar for any holiday by using other colors of the candies.
