Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Well I'm sure you all can tell by this picture that this recipe is a keeper. Not only are these bars easy to throw together for a crowd, but they are absolutely amazing. A thick, soft chocolate chip cookie in bar form. What can be better than that? I whipped these up when we got together with some friends a few weeks back and we ended up taking our fair share back home with us, which was the best thing ever. Pressing them down onto tinfoil makes for easy clean up and also easy pan removal. I seriously can't wait to make these again and I will probably have to wait for another special occasion or I could easily eat the entire pan myself. I mean, how could you resist all that chocolatey goodness?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Slightly Adapted from Our Best Bites
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. 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 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with foil and lightly spray the bottom with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
3. In a mixing bowl, 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.
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes. 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.
