Chocolate Chip Bar Cookies

I’ve always been a fan of chocolate chip cookies, and these were the cookies my mom frequently made when I was a kid. Imagine my surprise when I found out the recipe was from Nestle (and at one time was printed on the back of a package of chocolate chips)! But it’s a tried & true recipe, and has always been one of my favorites. Enjoy!
