Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies

Darci Juris


Do you remember "pan" or "bar" cookies growing up? I used to make these almost every Friday after school with my girlfriends. And we had a special Tupperware container to store them, which went on top of the refrigerator, and all the other kids in the neighborhood knew where to get fresh cookies at the Juris household.
