Cookie or Cake?

This recipe is basically cookie dough cooked as a cake.  It's delicious, but get your milk ready when you eat these.  You're going to need it  :)

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar (powdered is ok too)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large egg
1 (12 ounce) package chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 
Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Add cookie dough to a greased 9x13 pan, and flatten.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.


  1. Do you think it's better than cooking it as cookies? Is it more moist? Plus, that cookie bar looks suspiciously like your profile picture.

  2. I haven't tried this recipe as cookies, but I do know that it's super moist and yummy when you bake it all at once. They would probably be good as cookies too.
    This recipe doesn't call for milk, but you could probably throw some in. They definitely need milk when you eat them though, they're super rich :)
