If there is one thing this girl will always love, it’s homemade chocolate chip cookies. You know the ones, the most perfect recipe off the back of the morsel bag. Yup … THOSE cookies. Now, I will admit that anytime I make homemade cookies, I am the first person to break the cardinal rule of cookie making and I will straight up eat that raw cookie batter all day long. So much so that if I am consoling myself after a bad day by baking, I often will look down and wonder why the recipe is only putting out 17 cookies. Um… yeah…. YOU ATE THEM ALL BEFORE THEY EVEN GOT TO BE BAKED!!!!
Put down the spoon and step away… just step away….
Then I realized I was seeing more and more recipes that made the cookies into bars. This is an awesome idea as it saves time and lets be honest .. any cookies is a good cookie. Then I decided we should just take it one step further… F.R.O.S.T.I.N.G!!! So if we take chocolate chip cookies and make them into bars and then, oh hey, lets add frosting and know what? .. while we are at it, we should also add Halloween colored M&Ms and then slap another layer of cookie on top to make a sandwich… there is NO bad day that can survive against that!!
So that’s exactly what I did!
Now, keep in mind that you are basically cutting the recipe in half by doubling them up and making sandwiches. If you are looking to make enough for a kids party or even a potluck at work, you may want to double the cookie recipe. I did this and then used my 15 x 9 jelly roll pan and they came out perfect. Seriously, if you do not have one (or three) of these, click below and treat yourself. These are truly a life saver when you are making 42 dozen cookies for the holidays.
For a single batch, a 13 x 9 sheet pan is fine.
