Bar None! Our 25 Best Baked Bar Cookies

Cookies are not always round. In fact, just as many cookies come in bar shapes as they do circles. I happen to love serving bar cookies because they look a little neater and are always easy to eat. Plus, if you want to serve them for a fancy meal you can just cut them into smaller pieces and dust them with confectioners’ sugar to make them look extra fancy! There are almost an infinite number of bar cookies that can be made at home. Here are twenty five of our absolute favorite for indulging!
