Life Hack- lazy chocolate chip cookies
and you have all the ingredients...
and some milk to enjoy them with.
However, you have lost the will to scoop them out on to a cookie sheet for 10 pans worth of cookie making work!
Bar cookies are out of the question! They are never really crispy like a cookie, anyway.
Then inspiration hits.
The "you've got your chocolate in my peanut butter" moment of what if I made a really thin "bar" cookie, has arrived in your head. It's crispy, like a cookie. It's lazy like a bar cookie. It is the perfect marriage of crisp cookie meets lazy baker!
So ladies and gents, here is your new cookie method. Simply spread you cookie dough thinly on the cookie sheet or jelly roll pan! I tried and offset spatula, but my dough was too think. So, I pulled out the wax paper and smushed it down as flat as I could or a greased cookie sheet.
I used the recipe on the Coach's Oats bag for Oatmeal Coconut cookies and added 2 cups of chocolate chips. Here's the link to the original recipe.
You can cut it like a bar, a square, or if it must be round, whip out that biscuit cutter! One pan. One round in the oven. One afternoon you just got back in your life.
