Homemade Baguette Recipe

Here’s a cookie everyone will love. It’s packed with whole grains and fiber, but deliciously sweet and filling. These morsels have a soft bite, yet crispy edges that have a deeply satisfying heft to them — you really can eat just one — in fact, we call them granola bars. They also freeze very well and can be eaten straight from the icebox.

Tip: When creaming the butter and sugar, don’t rush it. Ideally you should beat for 3–5 minutes, until the mixture is no longer gritty. Creaming incorporates air into the batter, creating a nice rise in the cookie.
