This recipe is actually one that I found on "Real Mom Kitchen" which is one of my very favorite cooking blogs. I was craving chocolate chip cookies but wanted to try something different and these hit the spot. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but I think that these would be great with any kind of chips (white, butterscotch, etc.) or with M&M's for a fun kids treat. Hope you enjoy!
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups +2 Tbs. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
*Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
*Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with foil, letting the excess hang over the edges of the pan by about one inch. Spray the foil-lined pan with nonstick cooking spray.
* Whisk the softened butter and sugars in a large bowl until well combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix well.
*Add flour, salt and soda and, using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined; do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and turn batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula.
*Bake until the top of the bars is light golden brown, slightly firm to the touch, and edges start pulling away from the pan, 25-30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature.
*Remove the bars from the pan by lifting the foil overhand and transfer them to a cutting board. Cut into 2-inch squares and serve.
