Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

We had a church party on Friday night and I needed to take a dessert. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and made a few adjustments. They such a hit that I didn't even get a chance to take a picture of them! I might make these in the place of chocolate chip cookies in the future!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips -- I used 1 package of chocolate chips and 1 package peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, vanilla and water; beat until smooth. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Press into 2 greased 9-in. x 13-in. baking pans. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

I love bar cookies! They take the work out of standing there scooping and baking, scooping and baking...

If you say that they went like crazy, I'm going to try them! I'm always searching for the perfect easy-to-make chocolate chip cookie. Thanks for sharing!!
