Notes

  1. This recipe is suitable for a 9X13 pan. However mine was a tad bit smaller.
  2. The bar size is a good 1.5 inch size height
  3. The recipe can be doubled quadrupled to fit a half sheet pan or a full sheet pan
  4. It is recommended to bake at low temperature, so the cookie is not overdone
