Walnut Cookie Bars Recipe Is So Easy

Walnut Cookie Bars

 

I must admit that the bar cookies are my favorite form when it comes to cookie baking. The reason is that all the ingredients get poured into one pan without me continually greasing or shoveling out cookies from a number baking pans that account for washing more dishes. My Walnut Cookie Bars recipe streamlines the creaming process because I use oil instead of the butter along with a mix of brown and white sugars, chopped walnuts with nutmeg and vanilla that give this simple golden bar more opportunity to shine.

As a fan of bar cookies, I gathered several of my family’s favorites to share with you as well. Here are just a few they request most often such as my Coffee Almond Bars, which I dare you not to love, Chocolate-Coconut Spice Bars and my Chewy Brown-Sugar Oatmeal Bars. There are plenty more than you find by using my search box so check when you get some time.

One important thing that I want to stress is the need to level your baking soda and baking powder. You may think that adding a heaping spoon or just a bit more will help your recipe grow. However, you are sorely mistaken. Too much will just ruin your efforts.  Trust me, but I learned this the hard way.

Also, I like to make my Walnut Cookie Bars recipe as a thin bar. But if you prefer a thicker bar, you can opt for a smaller size baking pan.

With how busy all of us are between home and career, a cookie like my Walnut Cookie Bars recipe is a handy one to keep for those days that you want to bake something delicious but easy as well.

Walnut Cookie Bars Recipe

1 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
3/4 cup of brown sugar, firmly packed (light or dark)
3/4 cup of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2- ½ cups of sifted flour
½ teaspoons of baking soda, leveled
½ teaspoons of baking powder, leveled
1 teaspoon of salt
1-1/4 cups of chopped walnuts

 

Mix the first six ingredients in a large mixing bowl with your electric mixer until well combined.

Then, sift together the next four ingredients of the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly incorporate these sifted ingredients with the creamed ones until everything is added.

Stir in the chopped walnuts last.

Pour the batter into a well-greased baking pan about 15 X 10-inch.

Bake at 350-degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated.

These cookies become golden brown and puff up before deflating. Test with a toothpick to see if anything sticks, but they do harden up as they cool.

Give them a few minutes in the pan to cool briefly before scoring.

ENJOY!
