Yummmmmy…. Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars… These taste just like your favorite chocolate chip cookies but light and fluffy like the texture of a brownie! Oh and Half the mess with just one pan and you don’t have to roll into balls for cookies! Oh did I mention how fluffy and thick these things are! You love them I promise! Have fun with these and add in different types of yummy chips or nuts to really make them into your favorite!
Here’s what you’ll need….
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup (packed) brown sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
Fill free to add other chips. I did half semi sweet and half white chocolate. Also try it with Peanut butter chips, or butterscotch!
First, preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Then spray an 8×8 baking pan with cooking spray. Yes this is a square pan!
Now let’s make the good stuff…. the cookie dough! With an electric mixer or kitchen aid, blend the sugar and butter until creamy.
Then, add your 1 egg and the 2 tsps. of vanilla and beat at medium speed until light. creamy and smooth. Don’t taste it yet, Wait till the end!
Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl, and then add the flour and baking soda. Blend at low speed until combined.
FINALLLLLLLLLLLLY, add the chocolate chips and fold them into the dough with a spoon or spatula! Now you can sneak a taste! Don’t worry… No one’s watching!
Now place your yummy batter into your 8 x 8 pan and smooth the top to make it even all over.
Place your pan in middle of the oven and bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean but center is still soft. Cool on rack for about 20 minutes or so. (If you can even wait that long!!!!!)
When cooled, use a knife to cut into small bars.
