On The Menu: Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Is this fall zipping by for you too? I feel like I am barely at home which means that I have had almost zero time in the kitchen lately. I did get home early on Thursday and managed to whip up these incredibly easy and totally delicious chocolate chip cookie bars. This recipe is so simple and you probably have everything it requires all ready in your kitchen.

I thought I would have most of these bars left over to share with guests I am going to have this weekend but in less than 24 hours they had all but disappeared. These are a huge hit with soft cookie lovers and there are so many chocolate chips inside these that it is almost like you have a layer of gooey fudge inside.

I love cookies but honestly I seldom have the patience to scoop out and bake pan after pan of cookies. Plus, when I decide I want fresh baked cookies I kind of want them right then. Cookie bars a great way to solve this problem. If you have a great cookie bar recipe please share it with me!

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
