I love it when a recipe is versatile. I love that recipe even more when it's filled with chocolate. And that's why this recipe was love at first sight over at Bake or Break. I was craving cookies, but I didn't really have time to stand at the stove and scoop cookie after cookie onto baking sheets. Enter the bar option: As in one sheet of cookie dough, baked to perfection, and cut into squares ready to eat.
Yes. That's exactly what I wanted.
These were a hit at work. I hesitated to take them all with me because although the center of the pan was full of chewy goodness the edges of the pan were crispy crunchies. But ... some of us like chewy cookies and some of us like crispy cookies. In other words: My co-workers didn't leave a single crumb.
So I recommend these to you with the highest praises. (And if you make them as cookies let me know how they turn out!)
These bar-cookies are my submission to Blogiversary Bake Sale at illeatyou. The proceeds from this virtual bake sale go to the World Food Program. (Read more about it at First Giving.) If you're so inclined, please donate through the First Giving link and mention you arrived there from here, Confabulation in the Kitchen!
