    Just like earll says,,, no conversion needed,,,, just spread any cookie dough in a cake pan and make a bar ! SIMPLE and fast !! : )

    Unlike drop cookies, which use a soft dough, bar cookies are made with a fluid batter that needs a baking pan with sides for support to bake in.

    Just watch the time closely–a full sheet of dough will probably take quite a bit longer to bake completely & maybe keep the oven temp around 350 degrees (to avoid over-baked edges)
