I’m a sweet tooth person…as in I have a giant one! 🙂 I was messing around in the kitchen yesterday cooking while it was kind of cool. Dee had wanted some brownies for about 2 weeks and I didn’t, so I compromised on these. We both like chocolate chip cookies so I made her cake type dessert.
These chocolate chip bars are built like a cake, soft in the middle and slightly crunchy on the edges (I seem to have a thing for crunchy edges). They aren’t really sweet like cookies are, but I love these and they were a hit with everyone else, too.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
2 1/4 c flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t salt
1 c softened butter
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c packed brown sugar
1 t vanilla
12 oz chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×13″ cake pan, or spray with non stick spray.
Combine flour, soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, both sugars and vanilla in a large bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture and mix together. Stir in chips.
Spread into pan, making sure to get the corners covered. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
