Holiday season we all try to "stuff all the fun things that the season brings" into a few days and hours. So to take a little short cut during that mad dash to shop, clean and bake, I have submitted and easier way to make the old tried and true chocolate chip cookies into pan of bars!There are so many variations you can do to change this recipe just by adding nuts, butterscotch or peanut butter chips mixed in with the chocolate chips!

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together Butter, Sugar, 1 Cup of Brown Sugar, until smooth and creamy.  Break the eggs and separate egg whites into a small bowl, put aside egg whites for later.Beat the yolks, water, and salt together in a small bowl until well blended.  Add the yolk mixture to the butter and sugar mixture until well blended and slowly add the Flour,Baking Powder, and Baking Soda, until all these ingredients are well mixed.  Spread the dough into a Jelly Roll size Pan (15"x10").....So far just like "Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.... But now comes the fun part.  You can choose what you would like to sprinkle upon the top of this pan of bars !  Sprinkle a 12 oz. bag of Chocolate Chips on top or 1/2 bag of Peanut Butter Chips or Butterscotch Chips to give the bar some different tastes.  Nuts (1/2 Cup) can be added too.

Add the Meringue Top
2 Large Egg Whites ( reserved from above)
1 Cup Brown Sugar

Beat the Egg whites until stiff peaks are formed.  Fold and Blend in Brown Sugar.  Spread the Meringue on top of the batter in the pan.  Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Don't Peak- the top will be Golden Brown and the bars will be done baking at the same time.  Cool then cut into 36 pieces.
