Chocolate chip cookies are my all-time favorite cookie. They are a fairly “basic” cookie. But nothing can beat the warm, gooey sweetness of a warm chocolate chip cookie! I am not always up to all the work that chocolate chip cookies require, however. (Scooping out cookie dough into cookie-sized balls before baking them in the oven.) Enter the chocolate chip cookie bar! Chocolate chip cookie bars taste every bit as good as traditional chocolate chip cookies, but without all the scooping! Today I’m sharing a fabulous Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar recipe. I made these for my family last week, and they disappeared quickly!
I am sharing this recipe as part of the Taste Creations blog hop. Once a month, my blogging friends and I get together to share recipes. Today, we are all sharing cookie recipes!
I found the recipe for these Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars at Joy Food Sunshine. This recipe is quick and easy, with basic ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and fridge!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Ingredients
(For full ingredients list, see the recipe card below.)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Instructions
Cream the butter and the sugars together. (I mixed them in my KitchenAid Stand Mixer.) Add in the egg and vanilla and mix together some more.
In a separate Mixing Bowl, mix together flour, sea salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, and thoroughly mix together. Dump in the chocolate chips and mix some more.
Line an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with parchment paper. (You can also grease the parchment paper with the empty butter wrapper.)
Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. The cookie bars are done when an inserted toothpick comes out clean. (You may have to bake the cookies for more or less time depending on your oven.)
Cut the cookie bars into squares and serve.
