Debra's Blueberry Bars
"Here is an amazing recipe for blueberry bars. It's like summer in a bite-sized square."—Debra M.
Julie's Nanaimo Bars
"A small fleet of nanaimo (pronounced nuh-NYE-moh, I think) bars—rich, sweet, and Canadian! Every layer has butter in it. The base was a gluten-free graham crackers combined with melted butter, almonds, coconut, and cocoa powder. The middle is a custard-flavored buttercream. Then it’s topped with ganache and set in the fridge. Every layer has butter in it."—Julie/OneWallKitchen
Gayle's Lemon Bars
"One of my favorite and most-requested desserts is lemon bars (one of my friends has actually said that she wants to marry them!). They recipe is based on one by Alice Medrich (she does non-chocolate as well as chocolate) in her book "Chocolate and the Art of Low-fat dessert." This is one of the few lemon bar recipes I've ever found that does not call for a half pound of butter. The crust gets extra crunch for cornmeal."—Gayle S.

Heather's Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars
"Here is a recipe that uses one of Fall's bountiful foods...apples! Caramel apple cheesecake bars. A rich, buttery crust is topped with cheesecake loaded with caramel and apples. As if that isn't enough, then you add on a streusel topping and serve with more caramel sauce! This will satisfy anyone who loves caramel apples (and cheesecake)!!"—Heather H.
Lisa's Honey-Roasted Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars
"These are simple but awesome and super versatile. I needed a dessert to bring to a potluck and wanted something slightly cooler than your average chocolate chip cookie. So I made my great-grandma's chocolate chunk cookies, in bar form, and added in some honey-roasted peanut butter. They're sweet, salty, gooey and disappear really quickly!"—Lisa M.
Amanda's Dutch Apple Pie Bars
"While I have several bar cookie recipes that I love, these Dutch apple pie bars have recently risen to the top of the list. They start off with an animal cracker-brown sugar crust, which is topped with thinly sliced, lightly spiced and sweetened apples, then sprinkled with buttery streusel. It's the delicious taste of Dutch apple pie without the fuss of making a pie - plus they're easily portable, which made them a great (and popular) choice for tailgating at a recent UGA football game."—Amanda M.
Robyn's Blondie Bars
"These are my all time favorite Blondie Bars! They're sweet, salty, crunchy and gooey all at the same time!"—Robyn F.
Sarah's S'mores Bars

Kayle's Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
" These cookie bars are gooey and decadent. BUT they are made with whole wheat flour and have no butter! A healthier way to enjoy a sinful treat. :)"—Kayle B.
Sara's Oatmeal Jam Bars
"These super-easy jam-filled bars are the perfect use for your surplus jars of jam...especially useful if you're an overzealous canner like I am!"—Sara C.
Nicole's Rolo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

Neepa's Lemon Bars
"I've been making these lemon bars for years, and they are a definite favorite. So simple and so delicious. They've even been known to convert many self-proclaimed lemon bar haters."—Neepa P.
Dee's Buttery Citrus Shortbread Squares
"Not exactly a cookie, these fruit-filled, citrusy shortbread squares call for just a few ingredients and require almost no work at all. Really, I’ve made these in the morning when half asleep, popping a pan in the oven while I wait for the coffee to brew."—SeattleDee
Laura's Blackberry Pie Bars
"Blackberries are one of my favorite fruits, but there aren't many recipes for blackberry desserts out there. When I found this Blackberry Pie Bar recipe I knew I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed with the crispy shortbread crust, creamy filling, and plump blackberries. It's one of my favorite desserts and by far my favorite bar cookie."—Laura D.
Brooke's Triple Crown Brookies
