These are the delicious cookie squares that Betty M brought to my semi-annual rughooking pot luck. There were many requests for the recipe. She indicated changes if you would like to make larger batch for 9x13-inch pan.

- 1 cup flour (1 1/2 for 9x13)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar (3 for 9x13)
- 2 eggs, beaten (3 for 9x13)

- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder (3/4 for 9x13)
