(NAPSA) - If you want to "raise the bar" in your efforts at cookie making, try bar cookies.
Easy to bake, bar cookies are a satisfying treat that you mix in one bowl and bake in one pan.
These treats come in all shapes and textures, ranging from simple to sublime. Another plus is that bar cookies are easy to store. They can be left covered in the pan or wrapped individually. They can also be refrigerated or frozen to keep even longer.
