Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe

Every Wednesday my son Bill comes over for dinner. I always make him a nice home cooked meal and send him home with some leftovers. I also make dessert every Wednesday too. It is the only night of the week that dessert is guaranteed.

On the menu last week:

Chicken Parmesan!

chicken parmThis is one of Bill’s favorite recipes. When he was little this was the meal he always ordered whenever we would go out to eat. I love making chicken parm for him and always make a huge batch so he gets extra leftovers to bring home.

And for dessert:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars!

Here’s the recipe I used from Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Pan Cookie.

Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Pan Cookie

    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 (12 ounce) packages semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 1 cup chopped nuts ( I like pecans) (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375* Grease a 15×10-inch jelly roll pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
  3. Beat butter, both sugars and vanilla in large mixer bowl.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.
  5. Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
  7. Spread into prepared pan.
  8. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

I used a 9 x 13 pan and baked them for a few minutes longer. I started checking them after 25 minutes and took them out after about 8 to 10 minutes more. I also did not put nuts in mine.

I like to bake these when I have a craving for chocolate chip cookies but don’t want to spend all day baking them in batches. This is a much quicker way to get that Toll House Cookie fix!!


Thanks for reading!
