Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Recipe type: Cookie Bar
These bars are perfect for when you really want a cookie but don't feel like scooping and baking a few dozen. Just mix it up, spread it in a pan, bake and serve!
  • 2⅛ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 tablespoons butter (1½ sticks), melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Adjust the oven rack to lower-middle position. Line a 9X13-inch baking pan with foil, letting the excess hang over the edges of the pan by about 1 inch. Spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda together in medium bowl then set aside.
  3. Whisk the melted butter and sugars in a large bowl until combined. Next, add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla mixing well. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined; do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips and turn the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula.
  4. Bake until the top of the bars are light golden brown, slightly firm to the touch, and edges start pulling away from sides of pan (About 24-28 minutes. I cooked mine for 27 minutes.)
  5. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature. Remove the bars from the pan by lifting with the foil "handles" or overhang and transfer them to a cutting board. Cut into desired size squares or rectangles.
  6. Enjoy!
