Bar cookies can be crisp or chewy; filled or layered; smooth-surfaced or crumbly on top. Well-known types (like brownies, blondies, and lemon bars) have been supplemented in recent years with a profusion of new bar cookie recipes, like Viennese Walnut Layer Bars -- which combine the elegance of a pastry served at European tea time with the ease of making a bar cookie recipe. Walnuts, chocolate, and coffee give these bars their rich flavor.
