What’s for Dinner: Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
So last night, I wanted chocolate chip cookies. I was tired, however, and after starting to mix the ingredients together, I just didn’t want to have to sit there and form each individual cookie, and then bake them in batches and whatnot. Epitome of laziness, I know.
The compromise? I decided to just turn the cookies into bars. This couldn’t be simpler to make.
- 1/2 cup of butter, melted
- 1 cup of [light] brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 cup of [all-purpose] flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 cup of [milk] chocolate chips
To put your Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars together:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your non-stick [8×8] pan with non-stick cooking spray as an extra precaution.
- Combine your melted butter and brown sugar.
- Next, add in your vanilla extract vanilla and egg and mix everything together.
- Then, add in your dry ingredients slowly [your flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt]. Combine everything together before transferring your mixture into the baking pan.
- Sprinkle the top with chocolate chips. I sprinkled the chocolate chips on top, instead of mixing it into the mixture because I wanted the chocolate chips to pop out.
- Bake for about 25 minutes in your preheated oven. Or until the top is golden brown.
