Everything Layer Bar Cookies are an easy bar cookie recipe – and they are always a favorite.
Much like Magic Bars, you make these cookies in layers.
But this recipe has a twist. You bake the bottom layer first. Once it has set, you remove the baking pan from the oven and add the other layers.
And we all know from the name of the recipe that the toppings include all the good stuff in your baking pantry: chocolate, nuts, and dried fruit.
You can personalize the “everything” to include your favorites. Start with the classic toppings listed here.

For variety, substitute dried cranberries for raisins.
Set the cooled bars in the refrigerator or freezer for 30 minutes before cutting to get crisp edges.
