Ingredients
  

  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup cookie butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large whole egg
  • 1 large egg yolk only (save the extra white for another use)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • ½ tsp coarse Kosher salt, (if using table salt, use half the amount)
  • cup semi-sweet, dark or milk chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350, and line an 8x8 inch square pan with parchment paper, so that the paper hangs over the edges slightly.
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat, and stir in the cookie butter until melted.
  • Scrape the melted butter and cookie butter into a bowl, and add the granulated sugar and dark brown sugar. Stir until combined, although the mixture will be grainy.
  • Stir in the whole egg, egg yolk and vanilla, until the mixture is smooth with a "ribbony" consistency"
  • Separately, combine the flour, corn starch and salt. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
  • Briefly fold in the chocolate chips, reserving 2 tablespoons to sprinkle over the top of the batter.
  • Press the dough into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the 2 tablespoons chocolate chips over the batter.
  • Bake on the center oven rack for about 22 minutes. The bars should appear golden brown and slightly puffed.
  • Cool completely (at least 4 hours) before removing from the pan by lifting up the parchment paper, and cutting into bars. Sprinkle with extra sea salt or flaky finishing salt, if you like.

Notes

  • Store the cooled bars in an airtight container at room temperature, for up to 3 days, or wrap them well and freeze for 3-6 months.
  • This recipe can also be doubled and baked in a 9x13 pan.  The baking time for a double batch will be about 22-25 minutes.
