Wisconsin 54871 BAKE BARS, SAVE TIME By Betty Curren Time is often at a premium in the lives of today's busy homemakers. Busy cooks find that bar cookies are great time-savers because they enable them to avoid successive baking called for with individual cookies such as the drop or cut-out types. We've included a number of versatile treats, perfect to serve with coffee, for snacks for your family or for that sweet ending to the meal. These bars all keep and travel well which makes them ideal to bake for gifts or bazaars. Many bar-type recipes, such as brownies, may be baked and then frozen for use at a later date. For ease in freezing, bake in foil-lined pans and when cool, slip the whole panful out. Wrap them securely in additional foil before storing in the freezer. It is best to cut them into bars after defrosting rather than before freezing.
