chocolate chip cookie bars

Saturday morning I was ya know, making chocolate chip cookie bars for the bride to be, Annemarie and her bridal shower that afternoon up at Firestone.  I started making the recipe with oats, then asked and well, she doesn't like oats. This resulted in me realizing I was no longer following the recipe on the bag, and the ratio of brown to white sugar was a bit off.  This also resulted in a really buttery wonderful cookie bar which perhaps I can call my own?  I dare say, I think so.  Let this picture lure you to make these soon- easier and quicker than making individual cookies- right?!

the recipe- adapted from a couple recipes on the back of a toll house bag

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375

Beat brown sugar, butter, vanilla and granulated sugar in a large mixer until creamy.  Beat in eggs, one at a time.  Gradually beat in dry ingredients- flour, baking soda and salt.  Stir in chocolate chips.  The batter will look super buttery and like maybe you should add some more flour.  Don't worry.

Spread into a 9x13 baking dish and bake for 25 minutes- check and when golden brown on top remove, cool slightly, and enjoy!
