    I had a tube of sugar cookie dough in my fridge and I made up these bars.
    I got the dough free in some "buy this item, get this item free" thing at the store, but I HATE tube type cookies.
    They are too flat when you cook them and they taste all chemically. Yuck!

    Anyway, here is the recipe.


    Ingredients - 1 tube sugar cookie dough - divided into thirds
    1 to 2 pint sized jars of jam (I like 2 jars - they make the bars extra yummy)


    In a well greased 9x9 baking dish spread 2/3 of the cookie dough.
    Spread the jam on top of the dough.
    Break up the remaining dough into small quarter-sized chunks and sprinkle over the jam layer.

    Bake at 375 degrees for 35-45 mins. Until the dough is light brown and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean (without any dough sticking to it, there may be jam on it -that's OK).

    Take out of the oven - cool for 10 mins and eat. Or cool and keep in your refrigerator for a snack later.
    It's good hot and cold.

    Yum!

    I bet a lot of people do this, but I just thought to do it yesterday. Enjoy!

    That looks great, what kind of dough/jam did you use and would you use the same kinds again?!?!!?

    I'm surprised I missed this one!
    How much easier could it be unless you just ate the dough straight from the tube [​IMG]

    Hmmmm...how would this work with the tube of brownie dough and some raspberry or apricot jam?
    Or chocolate-chip dough and peanut butter!
    {smell of brain smoking...}

    I might have to experiment on my co-workers
