I’m all for a three day weekend but let’s face it, we kind of pay for it the following week. Tuesday feels like Monday and no one likes a Monday-ish Tuesday. By the time we get to Thursday it feels like we had two Wednesdays and Friday cannot come soon enough. It’s finally FRIDAY {insert cartwheel} and since you made it to the weekend you deserve a cookie! These Everyone’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars are just the thing to start your TGIF off on a high note.

These bar cookies are made in under thirty minutes with two bowls, one pan and a scant twenty minutes in the oven. Unlike this lonngggg four day work week, these bars come together in a heartbeat and I’ll bet you have all the ingredients you need right there in your pantry. You’ll be hard pressed to find an excuse NOT to make them. These golden brown goodies are my go-to for every book club, bake sale, team party and classroom birthday on the calendar.  You name it, these bars have been there.

Everyone loves these little squares of goodness and this sometimes-lazy-baker loves that I don’t have to scoop cookie dough. Great arm workout and all, but when I need to get something warm and buttery out of the oven in no time I reach for this recipe. Actually, if I’m being honest you should know that I have it memorized and filed in my baker brain under “recipes that are embarrassingly easy to make”. I told you…you have no excuse NOT to make these Everyone’s Favorite Cookie Bars.

Happy weekending bakers!
