Have a bar cookie recipe and want to make drop cookies with it? Have leftover cookie dough and want to do something different with it? Use your creativity and these baking times to help your quest. Who says you can't make a cookie pizza with your favorite Snickerdoodles recipe.

In a preheated 375 degree F oven on or in lightly greased or lined pans -

  • Drop cookies – baking sheet - bake for 8 – 10 minutes*.
  • Bar Cookies – 13 x 9-inch pan – 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Bar Cookies – 15 x 10-inch pan – 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Tart Shell or Cheesecake crust – in 9-inch tart or springform pan – 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Pie Crust – 9-inch pie plate – 10 to 15 minutes – push crust down to form shell soon after removing from oven.
  • Dessert Cookie or Pizza – 10 to 12-inch circle – 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Mini Tarts – 1-1/2 to 2-inch dough balls in mini muffin pan, make indentions in top of balls prior to baking – 8 to 12 minutes.
*Baking times depend on dough density and temperature. Plain butter or sugar cookie dough will take less time to bake than a Kitchen-Sink cookie dough. Frozen or ice-cold dough will take longer than room temperature dough to bake.
