Jumbo Chocolate Chip Squares Recipe

My husband and two boys love chocolate chip cookies, but these can take the place of their favorite cookie anytime! Two hints: Don't overbake them, and do use the chocolate chunks or jumbo chips that are available these days—they really make the difference.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter, cubed
