About baking these cookie bars:
This cookie bar recipe has 3 eggs and a lot of brown sugar, which makes them so soft and chewy. But the real key to soft cookies is how long you bake them for. The recipe calls for 30 minutes of baking time which yields a very soft and chewy cookie, maybe even for some, too soft. So if you like your cookie bars a little more done, just bake them longer. If you don’t like any chewiness, bake them for 5-10 minutes more. We personally loved the softness of the bars, so the 30 minute baking time worked for us.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe Tips
- Line the pan! Make sure to line the baking pan with parchment paper so you can easily remove the bars from the pan.
- Tip for pressing the dough into the baking pan: The dough is sticky, but I found that it was much easier to press the dough into the pan once it was chilled. If you can, place the dough into the fridge for about 10 minutes before pressing into the pan.
- When are the cookie bars done? The edges should look more puffed up than the centre of the pan, this is the key to chewy chocolate chip bars!
- Let them cool! Let the pan of cookie cool completely before cutting them into bars. You can even put it in the fridge if you like.
