chocolate chunk cookie bars

Yippee! I found the recipe. Really, I don’t tend to lose recipes. Keys, on the other hand… I do lose. When that happens, I just stay home and bake.

They will turn up eventually.

So,in my random post yesterday I gave you highlights of the past few days in my little world. I am really excited about that tree. Hope she makes it… one day I want to drink lemonade and read a cookbook under her.  And… just think of all the lemon things I can make???!!! Ooooo!

I also fell in total love with a cockatoo. Yep, her name is Coco. Her owner asked if I wanted her. It was his ex-wifes and he isn’t that “into” animals too much. I got to hold her and she just nugged right up on me and said, “Who are you?”  I think that’s the only time where it is completely all right for a girl to cuddle up and ask” who are you?” and it be acceptable. So, I am working on the hubster to give the okay if the offer presents itself once more… (I have a feeling it will…) Wish me luck. Like I need more animals, lol.

Now, about these cookies:

They are real good. Really good.  Mmm-hmmm.

Now if you’re not in the mood for sweets and looking for just something easy for dinner-don’t fret-I have main dish ideas coming this week. In the meantime, click on “main dish” over there and see what pops up! 🙂

man, there is something about cookie dough…

these are awesome to make because there is no scooping, slicing or arranging. You just pat it in the pan. I like lazy cookies.

They don’t let moms send homemade cookies to school for the class anymore where I live. That’s lame. Because these would make a 3rd grade class very hyper happy.


Here’s the recipe: (I am still trying to see how to make printables-as you may know, I am still learning all that computer stuff. If you have tips, please share!)

an update: I tinkered a bit during this post and I think I have it! Wooohooooo!


2 sticks softened butter

1 c white sugar

1 c light brown sugar

2 tsp vanilla

Beat the above ingredients until fluffy.


4 eggs

In another bowl, combine:

5 c flour

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

mix well and add to the butter mixture, then add 1 gag of chocolate chunks. I used a brand that starts with”B”.

Pat into a jelly roll pan or a 13x9x2 pan. I buttered mine and lined it with parchment. I ♥ parchment paper.

Bake at 375 for 17 minutes.

Allow to cool before slicing into bars.

I know… I had a hard time not eating one all hot n gooey, too. They just slice better that way. [print_this][/print_this]
