Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

“Chocolate Chip” always sounds good, doesn’t it?  Who isn’t delighted at the thought of a warm chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven (cooled just enough to be able to handle, of course)?  But sometimes the thought of scooping cookie dough onto a baking sheet, then waiting around a few minutes to take the cookies out of the oven (because there’s really not enough time to get started doing something else), then moving the cookies to a cooling rack and reloading the cookie sheet and repeating the process over and over again until the cookie dough is all baked just doesn’t sound appealing.   Enter “Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker” with this recipe:  http://frugalanticsrecipes.com/2010/11/chocolate-chip-cookie-bars/

My ingredients were all store-brand, except for the vanilla (it’s split vanilla beans in a jar with vodka poured over – had to sit for a few weeks (I think?) before use and now I just add more vodka when the vanilla is getting a little low): 2014_0127January20140023  We were all please with the results:  2014_0130January20140009  After the initial serving, my kids decided they liked these bars heated just a little in the microwave to bring back that ooey gooey fresh-from-the-oven melty chocolate sensation.  These will be making a comeback in my kitchen in the near future, and my kiddos will be happy happy 😀 😀 😀
