Today my buddy, Christy, from SouthernPlate is here visiting with a guest post. Please make her feel welcome and I’ll be back with another new recipe soon. ~Staceychocolate-chip-butter-bars

Hey friends! I’m thrilled to be guest posting on SouthernBite today for my friend, Stacey. You know, Stacey is like me in that, even in the days of Facebook, we don’t toss around the word “friend” lightly. We first met some six years ago and ever since then he has been one of my closest and most trusted friends. I love him as if he were my brother (albeit much younger brother – something I often tease him about).

So in honor of the sweet kindness always given to me by my friend, Stacey, I thought I’d share a sweet treat with you, Chocolate Chip Butter Bars. I love bar cookies best because of their simplicity in baking: mix up the dough, pat it into a greased pan, and bake. This chewy buttery bar packs a wallop of old fashioned flavor is studded with just the right amount of chocolate.

Heartwarming homemade cookies are just a few steps away. Hope you get to make them soon!
