If you love a buttery cookie with bite, try my grandma’s extra chewy chocolate chip cookie bars. They are loaded with chocolate chips!
1/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature plus more for pan
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir in the chocolate chips. Transfer to the prepared baking pan and spread into an even layer.
Bake for 22-25 minutes until golden brown. Let the pan cool on a wire rack before cutting into 16 equal bars. Store in an airtight container.
