These chocolate chip cookie bars produce a thick, soft cookie. They are a great time saver since they take just a few minutes to whip up and cook all at once in the oven!
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cups white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips (any kind you like, or a mix)
1/2 cup toffee bits (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13 inch baking pan with foil and lightly spray the bottom with cooking spray. Set aside.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine brown sugar, white sugar, and melted butter. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring between each addition, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients a little at a time until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips (save a few for the top if desired). Once dough is thoroughly mixed, press into the prepared baking pan.
Bake for about 25 minutes (all ovens are different, set timer for 20 minutes to start checking on them. They will bake for 20-30, 25 is perfection in my oven). Remove from oven when edges are golden brown and center appears set, but still soft. Cool completely to room temperature and then cut into squares.
