Easy Dream Bar Cookies recipe is a family favorite that goes WAY back. Like any bar cookie, they are super easy. The graham cracker crust is delicious.
Easy Dream Bar Cookies are simple and bursting with flavor.
I think some variation of Easy Dream Bar Cookies has been around since I was a kid, and that's a LONG time ago. Hee. Hee.
This version of the recipe is based on a recipe in The Flying Brownie cookbook by Shirley Fan. Her recipe calls for a crust made of chocolate sandwich cookies (like Oreos) with the stuffing removed and then crushed and mixed with the butter to form it. I used traditional graham cracker crumbs and added extra nuts (her recipe calls for only ½ cup), which makes these Easy Dream Bar Cookies pretty darn tasty (and higher in fat).
Don and I think these cookies are terrific. I challenge you to try them and post a comment about them below. They are super easy to make, since they are bar cookies!
What You Need
For this recipe, you will need measuring cups and spoons, a knife, a large mixing bowl, and an 8" x 8" baking pan. But what you really is a great cup of coffee to go with the cookies, am I right?
