Cookie bars are so easy, we’re not sure why we ever bake anything else…

If you’re a fan of yummy treats you can whip up in a flash, you’ll love this collection of delicious cookie bars made famous in the last century.

From the enduring Toll House pan cookies and rocky road bar cookies to oatmeal scotchies and magic cookie bars, these vintage recipes are sure to transport you back in time.

Cookie bars first gained popularity in the US during the 1950s and 60s as a quick and easy way to bake cookies without having to chill and slice or form individual dough balls. This made them a popular choice for increasingly overcommitted home bakers, who could simply mix up the dough, spread it into a pan and bake it all at once… not to mention the relative ease of cleanup!

To this day, pan cookies remain a popular treat, and they’re extra special when you can source vintage pan cookie recipes that take you back to your own childhood! Not all of them even require baking.

Grab your mixing bowl and mix up a batch of these delicious treats today — we have a recipe for every taste and occasion.
