One of Catherine Renno's favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes has evolved over the years into this tender, buttery bar studded with chips and nuts.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and beat until well blended.

Step 2

Stir in flour, salt, and baking soda until well combined. Stir in butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Butter a 9- by 13-inch baking pan and spread dough level in pan.

Step 3

Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until top is browned and a wooden skewer inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached, about 30 minutes. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes, then cut into 24 rectangles. Serve warm or cool.

Step 4

Nutritional analysis per bar.

A yummy snack cake....mine definitely came out more "cake-y" than like a cookie bar, but still a delicious treat.

Yummy and easy to make! I didn't have a clean 9x13 pan so I used one of the store-bought throw-away ones. Cooking time was 20 minutes instead of 30.

Maybe I did something wrong, but it seems like there is just something wrong with these. Made and baked according to directions, but they never cooked through and tasted remarkably like a stick of butter mixed with a lot of sugar. Threw most of them out.
