Chocolate chip cookie bars

I love cookies... and cookie bars...warm chocolatey goodness coming from the oven...can you say YUM... your house smells good and your family is happy...a double bonus :)  you can add different kinds of chips in here... white chocolate...or mix say peanut butter chip and regular chocolate chips..anything goes... I added nuts but you can skip them.. and add say 1/3 cup of chunky peanut butter...YUM... or add a little oatmeal.... These cookies are little gooey in the middle but oh so yummy....Enjoy

Chocolate chip cookie bars

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 t baking soda
1/3 cup chopped nuts
1 cup chocolate chips
1 stick butter/margarine softened
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 8x8 pan.
In large bowl add softened butter, brown & white sugar, vanilla & egg.  Mix with a wooden spoon creaming mixture until creamy and well combined. Add to butter mixture flour, baking soda, salt,nuts, water and chocolate chips mixing just until combined (mixture will be thick and kinda crumbly. ) Press cookie dough into pan with hands into an even layer.  Bake for 32-35 minutes or until golden brown.  Stick a toothpick into the center and make sure it comes out clean (there might be a little chocolate from a chip on the toothpick that will be okay).  Remove from oven let cool and cut into squares... enjoy
