Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Ever have those moments where you know you want to bake something but you don’t know if you want a cake or a cookie? Well, now you don’t have to decide! These chocolate chip cookie bars are the perfect mix – part cake, part cookie. They have the ooey-gooey pockets tucked away in a thicker, soft cake. The edges have a slight crisp and the center is extra soft. They’re incredibly easy to bake, just mix and bake. And they’re best to eat fresh baked right out of the pan! These are so so good to make in the colder weather and freeze great, so make an extra big batch!
