Weekend Goodies!

by jerseygirl on May 26, 2008 · 5 comments

Happy Memorial Day! It was great to start off the summer with a weekend of beautiful weather. We had a few barbecues to go to so it was time to make dessert. I went with a recipe given to me by my mother in law. Our family just loves these. My mother in law has been making these Marble Squares for years and my husband just can’t get enough of them. It seemed that everyone at our gathering also felt the same way. The bars didn’t take long to disappear. The recipe consists of the same ingredients as the original Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie recipe. The cookies are made in bar form and the chips are swirled on top rather than mixed into the bars. I have found numerous variations on the internet but these taste the best. I have never met anyone that didn’t like these. If you try them, you will see how addicting they can be. Thanks, Mom!

Come back tomorrow……..for brownies…..

Marble Squares (Adapted from the Nestle Tollhouse recipe)

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks, 1/2 pound) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated [white] sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
6 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
2. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually mix in flour mixture.
3. Spread batter in a 13×9 inch pan. Sprinkle the top with chocolate chips. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and run knife through dough to marbleize.
4. Bake for another 13 to15 minutes or until dough rises and then deflates. The cookies should be golden and set in the middle. Cool and cut into squares.

Clumbsy,
I can’t get enough either.
Patsy,
I like them much better marbled than with the chips mixed in.
Psychgrad,
Yes, and they take only a half hour.
