Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle

The teachers and children's staff where I work made up a fun cookbook for me for this last birthday.  What an awesome idea!  I love recipes and such a perfect gift for a foodie!!   They said they felt such pressure - no way!  I love it!!

Leslie shared this Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle.  I love chocolate chip cookies so I knew we would love it.  I could probably have cooked it a tince longer to me more "brittle-like" but it was so yummy.  I just cut it in a variety of geometric shapes.  The extra salt made it super yummy!!  Leslie included an idea of changing it up to be Almond Cranberry Cookie Brittle - would love that with a few white chocolate chips sprinkled in!



Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips

Combine butter, sugar, salt and vanilla - beat until creamy.  Stir in flour until blended.  Press dough into a greased jelly roll pan.  Bake at 350 for 15 - 20 minutes or even a little more.  Leave in pan to cool then break apart like brittle.

Almond Cranberry Version - replace vanilla with almond extract and add 1 cup dried cranberries.  I think it would be yummy to replace the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips :)
