These brown sugar cookie bars were soooo good!  They were kind of a cross between a chewy cookie & a brownie.  The flavor was amazing!
I may or may not have eaten the whole pan by myself.

  • 1/4 cup butter

      It makes an 8×8 pan full ~ it all depends on how small you cut them. If you cut them into regular brownie size bars, you should get about 16. I cut my brownie size bars in half so I ended up with double that & each cookie was about a two bite size.


  1. […] would love and I already had all the ingredients.  I found these Brown Sugar Cookie Bars over at Mom’s Test Kitchen and was so excited to give them a try.  The recipe was super simple and sounded delicious. […]
