The DMV and the Cookie Bars

I got to spend my morning yesterday getting my car registered. After three and a half years of living in Colorado I had forgotten what it was like to get my car registered in Utah. I had to do the safety and emissions, get the vin number checked out, and head to the always fun DMV. The whole process wasn't too terrible but I forgot how pricey it can be once the whole process is over. In Colorado after the first vin check they just send you a reminder in the mail, you pay online, and you're done!

As I was thinking about how sad it was going to be to take off my Colorado plates I made a right turn and ended up right next to my youngest sister on her way to school. Luckily the light was red so we were able to make lunch plans for when she was done. I couldn't help but smile afterwards and think about how that could have never happened Colorado.

I had a little time to kill before our lunch date and was craving something sweet and really in a baking mood. I looked through Pinterest and found an easy and quick recipe on this blog and decided to give it a go. When we first moved in, I had told The Husband that I wanted to build up my baking pantry and have all the necessary things for most recipes. My pantry had everything the recipe called for! Plus, it required me to sift flour which I love to do. The cookie bars were great and it only took me a half hour including melting butter and clean up.

Cookie Bars
1/2 a cup of butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of sifted flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking soda 
3/4 cups of chocolate chips (I also added butterscotch chips)

1. Melt butter in microwave safe dish. Let cool.

2. Add brown sugar, vanilla, and egg. Mix well.

3. Add dry ingredients gradually. Mix well. Pour into greased 9x9 pan.

4. Add chocolate chips and mix a bit more. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
