I guess I could just go without brownies or cookies during the hot summer months - but we all know - that's not going to happen. So, I had to figure out a way to keep my cool in the kitchen while still getting my baking done. My solution? I bake my favorite treats as bars instead of as individual cookies - they take less time to prepare and less time baking time which means a cooler kitchen.
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), browned
- 1 large egg

- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Brown butter in skillet.
Pour into a mixing bowl and let cool slightly.
