Spread Cookie Bars

May 29, 2015
This food blog has kinda spoiled my family.  Especially, lately.  I've been kicking myself for having so many desserts posted, however, they are in serious heaven.  My husband doesn't ask what is for dinner anymore when he gets home, only what sweet treats have been baked up that day.  He is actually double spoiled. Lots of stuff has been sent to work with him.  His students have been guinea pigs on a few things and I'm sure they aren't eating it all themselves.

These bars were intended to go to work with him. The final days of school are numbered and my guinea pigs will be gone for the summer.  Turns out, I didn't need them.  My kids took care of these for me and gave a thumbs up pretty quickly.



I found these over at The Pioneer Woman and yum! They are good.  Also, super quick to make.  Instead of taking the time to make individual cookies, you just spread the dough on your cookie sheet.  Then, spread the chocolate on top and slice them up.  The lazy baker is lovin' these things, guys.  Such a great idea.

If you don't have chocolate chips on hand, give them a try with peanut butter chips or white chocolate chips!

Spread Cookie Bars
Prep Time:  10 minutes
Baking Time: 15 minutes
Makes:  24-48 squares, depending how you cut them

Ingredients:
  • for cookies:
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • for chocolate topping:
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a large baking sheet/cookie sheet.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy.   Add in eggs and vanilla.Then, add flour in gradually.  Mix all until dough forms.
  4. Spread dough onto baking sheet.  Spraying your spatula with some non stick cooking spray makes spreading the dough a little easier.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until brown.
  6. Remove from oven and sprinkle the top with chocolate chips.
  7. Put back in your oven for just a minute to get chocolate chips soft.
  8. Then, remove and spread chocolate on top of cookie.  Go slowly.  Your dough is warm and will tear is you aren't careful.
  9. Cool completely and then, cut with knife or pizza cutter.
