Allergy-Friendly Sugar Cookie Bars

Posted 3.23.12 | Nutrition Specialist

In honor of spring, we recommend baking these allergy-friendly sugar cookies and taking them on a picnic.  Also, if you’re feeling really festive you can use festive cookie cutters!


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup Crisco
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup natural organic applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Blend sugar, Crisco, canola oil, applesauce and vanilla extract together with mixer on medium speed.  In a separate bowl, blend flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.  Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix together with mixer.  Dough will be thick.  Press dough into ungreased 9 x 13” pan and bake for 20-30 minutes or until slightly golden.  Cool and cut into squares and serve.
