Choco-chip cookie bars!

So I've been trying and trying to get that video posted, but it just isn't working! I'm going to try it on a bunch of different computers and see if that will help. So keep your fingers crossed, y'all!
Anyway, yesterday I made chocolate chip cookie bars. omnomnom! I didn't make them gluten free because that would completely go against eating healthy. But the boys loved em, and I'm sure you will too!

2 1/8 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325F. In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, salt, and baking soda and set it aside. In a large bowl whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until they are all combined. Then add the eggs and vanilla. Once those are all mixed together, slowly fold the flour into the liquid mixture.

Stir it together until it forms a mass of cookie dough. Please try not to eat it all at once, you want to save it for baking. Then add in the chocolate chips and try and get them evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.

Line a 9x13 baking pan with foil and spray the foil with non stick cooking spray. Scoop the cookie dough into the baking pan and spread it flat. Here's how Dan described it: "Use it like the smudge tool in photoshop. Don't start from the edges, start from the inside where it's thickest and go out." I promptly called him a nerd and followed his instructions. I suggest you do the same.

Bake it for 25-30 minutes (I think mine was done at 28) until golden brown and cooked through.

Let it cool a bit and then take them out of the baking pan and let them cool more on the counter. When they've cooled, cut it into squares and eat em up!

    Dan may be a nerd, but he's a delightful one.
