Here are the BEST squares recipes and holiday baking recipes to use when you're in a hurry. Make lots and freeze the extras. Perfect for the holidays or a quiet evening with hubby! Most of these are from traditional German recipes, but some will be adaptations that I've made of what we like!
Then here are some pointers ...
Sometimes it's as easy as taking a cookie recipe and converting into bars. It sure is faster than making individual cookies!
Use bars and squares as a quick and easy cookie recipe. Especially, when the kids need to bring cookies to school.
Most of these recipes are also ones they can help make. Sometimes it's just the decorating part. Drizzle on some icing. Sprinkle on some sprinkles. Decorate with dried fruits and nuts. Let them be creative!
When chocolate is drizzled on top, or when covered with a creamy frosting, these treats look and taste delicious!
Another one of my favorites are Coconut Pecan Bars. Almonds or hazelnuts can be substituted for the pecans. Delicious! Delicious! Delicious! And, so quick as well!
