  • Pan size counts; be sure to use the right one. If you don't have a 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan, use two 9 x 9 x 2-inch baking pans. If you don't have a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan, use two 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking pans. Use the same oven temperature, but check the bars for doneness 5 minute before reaching the minimum baking time given in the recipe.
  • Think outside the square. To cut triangles, cut bars into 2- or 2-1/2-inch squares, then cut each square in half diagonally. Use this two-step method for cutting diamonds: Cut parallel lines 1 or 1-1/2 inches apart down the length of the pan. Then cut diagonal lines 1 or 1-1/2 inches apart across the pan.

Cream Cheese-Carrot Bars Our healthier version of the cookie classic substitutes applesauce for part of the oil. Egg product keeps the cholesterol in line. We used soft-style cream cheese with pineapple and omitted the butter in the simple frosting.
