You guys won't even believe how amazing these raspberry chocolate chip cookie bars are!
If you need proof that this recipe is THAT good, I'll just tell you that the first time I made these bars, they didn't even last 24 hours in our house! I promise I didn't eat them all, either!!
Well, who doesn't like chocolate chip cookies and raspberries?
When making this recipe, DO NOT try to stir the raspberries into the dough! Reason being, you can't really fold them in without mashing them in, even though the red raspberry swirled through the dough looks pretty before baking, it turns an ugly shade of gray during baking. I only know this from personal experience while experimenting with them. So yeah, don't stir them in.
Instead, you pat half the dough into the pan, add the raspberries, then top with the remaining dough using a cookie scoop.
