So you want chocolate chip cookies, but you’re feeling too lazy to roll out dough balls. Make these instead! Tastes like a chocolate chip cookie, takes minimal effort.
(I wasn’t sure what to call these. I was calling them Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies in my head, but it seems like brownies-sans-cocoa are typically called blondies, so I went with that.)
In a small bowl, stir together:
1¼ cups flour
¼ tsp salt
½ cup chocolate chips
(optional) ¼ cup nuts
Set the dry ingredients aside.
In a second, slightly bigger bowl combine the remaining ingredients.
½ cup unsalted butter
1½ cups brown sugar
Finally, beat in:
2 tsp vanilla
Mix in the dry ingredients.
Pour into an 8×8 pan and bake at 350°F for 25 min.
