Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

We had a family gathering last night and I made these Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars from Our Best Bites.  They were a HIT!  So I guess that makes this recipe a keeper!  You can find the recipe HERE on their blog.

Our Best Bites Soft and Thick Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cups white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips (any kind you like, or a mix)
1/2 cup toffee bits (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 9×13 inch baking pan with foil and lightly spray the bottom with cooking spray.  Set aside.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and whisk to combine.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar, and melted butter.  Add eggs, one at a time, stirring between each addition, and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients a little at a time until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips (save a few for the top if desired).  Once dough is thoroughly mixed, press into the prepared baking pan.  Bake for about 25 minutes (all ovens are different, set timer for 20 minutes to start checking on them.  They will bake for 20-30, 25 is perfection in my oven.)  Remove from oven when edges are golden brown and center appears set, but still soft.  Cool completely to room temperature and then cut into squares.
