Most people can categorize themselves as a chocolate person or a vanilla person. I happen to be the latter. Don't get me wrong, I love chocolate. Like, I really really love chocolate. But if I'm faced with choosing between two desserts and one of them is vanilla and the other is chocolate, I'm gonna go for the vanilla option 8 out of 10 times.
So I created these cookie bars specifically for those who are just like me, those who have the same love affair with vanilla. These bars start with a vanilla-infused Nilla wafer crust topped with soft vanilla blondies. If that's not enough vanilla already, the blondies get sprinkled with big chunks of vanilla sandwich cookies, like Golden Oreos.
Then the whole thing gets a drizzle of melted vanilla chips. I like to bake cookie bars until they are juuuust barely done so that they stay nice and soft in the center. There's a super thin golden crust that forms on the top of the melt-in-your-mouth blondie center, and then at the bottom you have that sweet vanilla wafer crust. Are you drooling yet?
Vanilla lovers rejoice - this cookie bar was made specifically and especially for you! Enjoy!Print
