Pudding Cookie Bars

pudding cookie bar

I’ve mentioned before that I like to make bars rather than cookies. They don’t look as nice, but they are quicker to make, and when they are just going to be devoured by my boys, it doesn’t matter. Of course, my husband and I never devour cookies. J

I have already given you this gluten-free pudding cookie recipe. I wanted to mention that it also works well in bar form. I spread the batter in a jelly roll pan and baked it about 25 minutes. This time, I used half butter and half coconut oil. It worked fine, but definitely gave it a coconut flavor. We liked it, but it overpowered the flavor in the butterscotch pudding that I used. However, that’s the great thing about these cookies. You can mix and match flavors as you like.

If you need a delicious, quick and easy dessert this weekend, you might want to give these a try.

  1. I like making bars, too. I actually think that cookies often turn out a little more moist and chewy in bar form. I like how bars look, but maybe you mean that they are a little more homey, whereas a traditional cookie looks a bit more finished or professional. At any rate, it’s a good reminder to do this more often!

  2. I like bars they’re easy like brownies, and just one batch so you don’t have to have the oven on as long.

    and good with ice cream. yummy.
