- Add the eggs and vanilla; blend well.
- Reduce mixer speed to low; add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda, mixing just until combined. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
- Pat the dough into the prepared pan; sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake 20-22 minutes or until golden brown; cool in pan 5 minutes.
