Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Shortbread Bars 33


So, I found a recipe on Pinterest, but had to change it up a bit.  This really does taste like cookie dough, and you can eat it because it has no raw eggs (but does that really stop anyone from eating cookie dough??)  Just remember, this is very rich.  It eats like fudge with a shortbread crust!!  One taste is so delicious and slightly addicting, but cut them into tiny squares for serving.  I added the shortbread and am glad I did as I think it adds some texture and contrast to the sweet, sweet cookie dough.

  3. 1 c. flour

  6. Take out and allow to cool.
  7. Mix butter, brown sugar, and vanilla together until creamy. Add flour and sweetened condensed milk.
  8. Cookie dough should be soft and have dough consistency.
  9. Once crust has cooled, press cookie dough on top.
  10. You may want to use a plastic baggie to help you press dough onto crust.
  11. Put chocolate chips in microwavable bowl.
