Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Adapted from

Once upon a time a cute, ambitious girl who loved to cook had a food blog.  Then she studied abroad in Israel, got married, and started her Master’s program.  This is the relaunch of that blog.

I figured I’d restart this blog with a BANG! My husband is a cookie aficionado, and these are his favorite.  I even made this as his birthday “cake” last year.  Because who doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies?

So, here’s what you need:

2 cups of flour (I’ve used both white and whole wheat before – both work!)

10 T of butter

1 cup of brown sugar

½ cup of sugar

2 eggs

2 t of vanilla

½ t of baking powder

salt (about ½ t)

1 12-16 oz bag of milk chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325 first. Melt butter and combine it with the sugars, eggs, & vanilla until well mixed. Fold in the remaining ingredients (except chips) with a spatula.

Once you’ve got the white clumps mushed in, (yeah, I made that word up) fold in the chocolate chips.

Spread in a greased 9×13 pan and bake like you like your brownies. (The middle should be somewhat soft, and the edges golden kissed.) It will be about 25-30 minutes.

And then! They look like this. Tada!!!
