This food blog has kinda spoiled my family. Lately, even more than usual.

I’ve been kicking myself for having so many desserts posted, however, they are in serious heaven. My husband doesn’t ask what is for dinner anymore when he gets home, only what sweet treats have been baked up that day. Actually, he is spoiled even more than the kids.

I send so many of the blog desserts to work with him. His students have been guinea pigs on a few things and I’m sure they aren’t eating it all themselves. 😉

These bars were intended to go to work with him. The final days of school are numbered and my guinea pigs will be gone for the summer. Turns out, I didn’t need them!

My kids took care of these for me and gave a thumbs up pretty quickly.

I found these over at The Pioneer Woman and yum!

Instead of taking the time to make individual cookies, you just spread the dough on your cookie sheet. Then, spread the chocolate on top and slice them up.

The lazy baker in me is in love with these cookies!

Give them a try and enjoy-

A fun twist to your average cookie! Spreading your cookie dough on a flat rimmed baking sheet gives your cookies a new look and a delicious taste.


  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a large baking sheet/cookie sheet.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla.Then, add flour in gradually. Mix all until dough forms.
  4. Spread dough onto baking sheet. Spraying your spatula with some non stick cooking spray makes spreading the dough a little easier.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until brown.
  6. Remove from oven and sprinkle the top with chocolate chips.
  7. Put back in your oven for just a minute to get chocolate chips soft.
  8. Then, remove and spread chocolate on top of cookie. Go slowly. Your dough is warm and will tear is you aren’t careful.
  9. Cool completely and then, cut with knife or pizza cutter.


  • If you don’t have chocolate chips on hand, give them a try with peanut butter chips or white chocolate chips.
