Chocolate Chip Cookies and Blondies {One Recipe, Two Amazing Desserts}

It’s no secret that I love to bake. I make cookies for my class at least once a week. As I was making the batter for my cookies yesterday, I thought to myself, “What else can I do with this batter?” I was definitely tired of making cookies. I thought about it for a minute and then it hit me…why not make blondies?? But alas, I had already made the cookie batter. Then it hit me again…just use the same batter! So, feeling like I was some kind of mad scientist, I decided to put the cookie batter into a baking pan instead of scooping out cookies and guess what? They came out AMAZING! I took the chocolate chip blondies to class and they were well received. I even packaged two of them up for my professor for Teacher Appreciation Week. Here is the fabulous recipe for making either chocolate chip cookies or blondies, or both! Enjoy!
