- 2¼ cups (270g) all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¾ cup (170g) melted butter
- 2/3 cup (133g) white sugar
- 1 cup (200g) brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 room temperature eggs
- 1 cup chocolate chips (half semisweet, half bittersweet), with a handful reserved
- Optional: ½ cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, or macadamia)
- Optional: Flaked sea salt for topping
1. Prepare Your Baking Dish: First, line an 8×8 inch dish with parchment paper, making sure it fits snugly. Feel free to use foil, but parchment paper provides an easy lift later. Set it aside.
2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking soda. Keep this mixture aside.
3. Prepare Wet Mixture: In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Mix well to form a thick, smooth consistency. Mash any brown sugar lumps.
4. Add Flavor and Eggs: Stir in the vanilla extract and add the eggs. Use a whisk to blend everything until it’s smooth and tempting. Resist the urge to taste it now!
5. Combine Dry and Wet Mixtures: Gradually fold in the dry mixture using a spatula. Mix until most of it is incorporated.
6. Add the Sweet Treats: Throw in your chosen chocolate chips and nuts, if using. Fold them in, ensuring even distribution.
7. Transfer to Baking Dish: Carefully transfer the batter to your prepared baking dish. Smooth the top and add the reserved chocolate chips for a glossy finish.
8. Optional Salty Twist: Sprinkle a hint of flaked sea salt on top for an exciting crunchy, salty bite.
9. Bake: Place the dish in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 30 minutes if you prefer gooey bars or up to 40 minutes for a firmer texture.
10. Cool and Cut: Once baked, allow the cookie bar to cool and set before removing it from the dish. Cut into bars of your desired size.
11. Serve and Enjoy: Serve these luscious bars with ice cream or milk and watch them disappear in a flash!
