Fair warning, these cookies are evil. Broken into bite-sized pieces, they are incredibly easy to just eat in passing. I had to hide them so we wouldn't eat them all the same day, whenever we walked thru the kitchen! In fact, these did not even last long enough for me to get a picture.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark
(adapted from The American Country Inn Bed and Breakfast Cookbook, Volume 2)
1 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled (or if you only have salted butter like me, just omit adding more salt)
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup nuts (I used pecan pieces)
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour melted butter into a large bowl and stir in vanilla. With a wooden spoon add sugar, salt and flour and mix to combine. Mixture will be similar to a wet pie dough. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips. Press mixture into a thin, even layer on an ungreased cookie sheet. Make sure it is thin, too thick and it comes out too hard to eat. Bake about 25 minutes, until light golden brown in the center. Let cool completely and break into bite sized pieces. Store in an airtight container, if they're around long enough for storing!
