1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray.

2:  In large bowl, stir all ingredients until soft dough forms. Spread dough evenly in pan.

3:  Bake 20 to 24 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 1 hour. Cut into bars or squares.  Store in airtight container.

Darlene’s Tips: You can add some chopped nuts to this recipe.  You can also try it with any flavor of cookie mix. Drizzle some melted morsels on the top of the cookies if desired.
