Conga/chocolate chip/tollhouse cookie bars

Someone cut these while they were hot!

These cookie bars seem to go by various names – Conga bars, chocolate chip cookie bars, tollhouse bars. Really they are a chocolate chip cookie dough baked in bar form. I got a late start on them tonight, so I melted the butter to speed up the process. I also added an extra yolk and some cornstarch to make them soft. I know they seem a little underdone after 30-32 minutes, but that is enough time. They will continue to bake in the pan and will be just fine once they cool completely. ( if you cook them too long, they will become dry! And that is not acceptable. )

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 /4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 yolk
  • 2 1/2 cups flour (scooped from your flour container into your measuring cup to ensure the right amount)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil and spray with baking spray. In a bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, sugar. Add eggs, yolk, vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Add 1 1/2 cups,chips. Press evenly into prepared pan. Gently press remaining 1/2 cup chips on top. Bake 30-32 minutes (light golden patches on top). Cool completley. Store in covered container.

Is anything better than a chocolate chip cookie like dessert? (only a Buffalo Bills win)
