The secret to cutting perfect bars is to line the pan with foil so you can lift out the baked bars. Grease the foil as directed in the recipe.

Special Touch: Cut bars into triangles for a new shape on your holiday cookie tray. Or use small deep cookie cutters in heart, star and bell shapes to give a festive touch. Spray cookie cutters with cooking spray for easier cutting.
