Lemon Chip Cookie Bars

June 23, 2011

Summer makes me want citrus everything. I brought these to a BBQ at my brother’s apartment and every time someone opened the box, the smell of lemon came rolling out. It was great!

You will need:

  • 1/2 c butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 c sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 2 1/2 c  flour
  • 1/2 c mini semisweet chocolate chips

Then you…

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Beat in the egg whites, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract.
  4. Stir in the baking soda, salt and flour until well mixed.
  5. Mix in the mini chocolate chips.
  6. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake approximately 30 minutes, or until lightly golden and set in the middle.
  7. Allow to cool before removing from the baking dish.
