Yields: 1 dozen cookie bars
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 2 ¾ cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon (or to taste)
- 5 bars Hershey’s chocolate
- Cocoa powder and extra cinnamon (optional)
- Soften butter by leaving it stand or microwave for 10-15 seconds. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to cream butter with sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla.
- Add one egg at a time, stirring well between each.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, soda, and cinnamon.
- Pour a little bit of the dry mix into the wet and stir until completely incorporated. Repeat as needed, or about 4-5 times.
- Spoon just enough finished dough into pan to cover bottom (about ? of dough).
- Lay chocolate bars in single layer on top of dough in any way they fit. It’s OK if the chocolate touches the outside of the pan.
- Spoon another third of the cookie dough on top and spread over the chocolate bars. Tip: It helps to spray the spatula you are using with cooking spray so that the dough doesn’t stick to it. Also, this step is done before refrigeration because the dough is more pliable.
- Sprinkle the top with cocoa powder and more cinnamon.
- Refrigerate for about 2 hours.
- After 2 hours, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove cookie lasagna from fridge and bake for # minutes or until dough is done. Let sit for about 15 minutes before cutting into 12 bars and serving.
