CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE BARS


There are a lot of the chocolate chip cookie recipes, but I think this one is quite interesting. It takes so little time for shaping these cookies, because after mixing the dough all you have to do is put the dough in the pan and bake, no need to use a lot of equipments, no need to shape in to portion. The recipe comes from my own magazine collection so old right? But I believe good recipe never grow out of date. As always I reduce the sugar amount in the recipe but if you use only nut in the recipe you may increase the sugar amount to 100g (or not up to your taste).

2. In the bowl cream butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla; mix until well combined. Add half of the flour mixture; beat on Low speed until just combined. Beat in the rest of the flour and chocolate chips or nut (if using).

3. Spread dough on prepared baking sheet. Bake, rotating sheet halfway through. until edges are brown and top is golden, 30 to 35 minutes.


Transfer to a wire rack; let cool completely on baking sheet. Use a serrated knife to cut into bars.
*If using nut, let cool for 5 minutes and cut into bars before let the cookies cool.

They Look Scrumptious. I would have been tempted to drizzle chocolate on top but I think you presentation is perfect. I can just imagine them with a bowl of Ice cream.
