Tri-chip Cookie Bar

I love making cookies but I am so busy these days. I will be the first to admit, I have recently developed a cookie bar problem! I have a love affair with how easy it is to make cookies in bar form.


I was really longing for some chocolate chip cookies recently, so I decided to play with a basic dough recipe to make it perfect in bar form. But then something went terrible, terrible wrong, or should I say right! When I went to the cupboard for the chocolate chips, I spotted some butterscotch ones right next to some white chocolate chips. That is when I rubbed my hands together and went “Muuuuhh haaa haa haaaaa!!!” And of course the littlest country kid looked at me like I had lost my mind… but back to the baking…..

Yes, yes I did put all three kinds of chips in my dough! But I had to get the right combination of flavors and I am happy to say, after nibbling different chip combinations, I nailed it! Just ask my neighbor you need a moment of silence as she chewed in bliss! So how does one make a Tri-chip Cookie Bar to die for? I am glad you asked!!

•3/4 cup of butter (softened)
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 teaspoons vanilla
•1/2 cup granulated sugar
•1 cup brown sugar
•2 eggs
•2 cups wheat flour
•1 cup chocolate chips
•2/3 cup butterscotch chips
•1/3 cup white chocolate chips (vanilla)


Of course we had to mill up some fresh flour for our recipe with out Wonder Mill!

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together, then add in the chips. I think we are all grown here so I will not say, cream this, or incorporate that….. just mush it all together. Heck grab your kids, make them mush it up! Now put the thick dough in a GREASED 9 x 13 pan. You will have to use your spatula to press it around. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 ish minutes. You know all stoves cook a little different. You will know the bars are done when they turn golden brown and pull away from the edges of the pan.

Let the pan cool before cutting. I know, I know, waiting is so hard to do when these are so good. Don’t worry, it doesn’t take long. Now grab a few and go hide in a closet. Trust me on this one. If the children know that you made them they will be all over you! And I apologize in advance for the addictive nature of these bars and the 5lbs you are about to gain from repeatedly making them!

About Mindie @ The (mis)Adventures of a "Born Again" Farm Girl

On a 1/4 acre in a VERY small town lives a slightly deranged woman who never thought she would be a Farm Girl again, then her son asked for a chicken! So began The (mis)Adventures of a “Born Again“ Farm Girl.

Hi, my name is Mindie and I quickly realized my rebirth went much deeper then a few hens ….. It awoke a desire in me to do more, ourselves, for our family…. To learn the “old ways” of doing things. We raise chickens, ducks and rabbits, garden and can, tap our maple tree for syrup, cure our own hams, make lard and our own bacon! This spring we will be adding bee hives as well! It is never a dull moment here in Michigan with my hubby and two country kids.

And of course I love to cook and bake. There is just something about home cooking that not only brings comfort to the heart but healthier food to the plate. The ability to mill our own grains had been on our list of homesteading goals and I am so excited to be a part of The Grain Mill Wagon Challenge.
