|Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars vs. Giant Breakfast Cookies|
The conclusion that I came too...these are two totally different equally delicious recipes. The Giant Breakfast Cookie is a wholesome, healthy (but don't tell the kids) cookie shaped muffin. It has a soft cake like texture with the little bits of sweetness provided by the chocolate chips (you can also use raisins).
Since I am new to the blog world I really don't know if it is polite to share other people's recipes without their permission????? So until I know for sure, I don't want to offend anyone...if you want Laura's recipe...Google, Heavenly Homemakers and look up her Giant Breakfast Cookie under recipes!
My recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars you are most welcome to and I hope you try and enjoy it for many years to come. I tend to make this recipe instead of traditional cookies. I mean it's a cookie bar! You put it in a pan and bake for 25 minutes....then cut it into small pieces...so much easier than baking 4 dozen cookies! This is one of my Momma's favorites!
My Momma came walking in my house the other day with 2 bags of flour, a canister of oatmeal and a bag of brown sugar. I just looked at her and asked why she was bringing me the main ingredients to My Man's Cookies!!! She just laughed and said that the brown sugar would go really well in Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars too! I always like groceries....especially when I don't have to go and buy them!
Now the recipe....
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour, sifted
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
2 cups of chocolate chips
Melt your shortening. I have found that if you use a glass measuring cup that shortening measures out the same in it's solid form as it does in it's liquid....so save yourself some aggravation and just measure your shortening into you measuring cup and microwave it!

|The hard part is letting them cool enough to cut and eat!|
