Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.

Okay these are NOT healthy & are quite indulgent!  But I made them because one of my daughter’s closest friends had knee surgery on Friday and had invited a bunch of girls over tonight for pizza & a movie.  I thought it would be fun to make these for a treat and they smell soooooo good!  Glad they are out of my house now 🙂

Ingredients:

2 c of packed brown sugar, light brown
1/2 c of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (melted)
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tsp + 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
2 c of all purpose, unbleached, flour (spooned in and leveled with a knife)
2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
8 oz of chocolate chips
(optional) add peanut butter chips or butterscotch

Preheat oven to 350 and then spray a glass 13×9 pan with non stick spray or butter/flour and set aside.

In your mixer with the paddle attachment, blend butter and brown sugar.  Then add one egg at a time, mixing in between.  Add vanilla.  Then in 3rds add the flour and blend.  Add the remaining ingredients and mix until incorporated.  Avoid over mixing.  Spoon into the prepared pan, it doesn’t seem like a lot but it will rise quite a bit.  Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown.  Let rest for about 15 minutes then cut into squares.
