Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
I love these chocolate chip cookie bars because you just pat the dough into the pan to bake- nothing to roll into balls or cut out with cookie cutters.  We prefer to make a triple batch of the dough and then divide it up to make chocolate chip cookie bars, butterscotch chip cookie bars, and plain cookie bars (without chips).
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups chocolate chips (or any kind of chip, or even none at all!)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Place the butter and sugars into the mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until they are fully incorporated. Add the flour mixture and beat until just combined.
  4. Press the dough into a 9×9 inch baking pan.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top. Allow to cool, and then cut into squares to serve.
