How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I always begin by preheating the oven–to 350 degrees for this recipe–and getting the cookie pan ready. Line a 9×13 inch cake pan with parchment paper and then let’s talk ingredients.

You start out by creaming the butter and sugars together and then add an egg and a couple of teaspoons of vanilla and mix well. Add flour, salt, baking powder and soda and mix well. The espresso powder and chocolate chips come next.

Press the dough into the cookie pan and bake for about 18-20 minutes. Let them cool slightly before you slip them from the pan and cut them into squares.
