Recipe by Betty Bel

This recipe was passed down from my Grandmother, when my mother and her family lived in India in the 30's and 40's. If you like Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies you will love this recipe. They are simlar to a blonde brownie with chocolate chips, and nuts.

My family loved these cookie bars! Soft and chewy and the brown sugar gave them a nice flavor. I really liked that they were full of nuts! I made this for Spring PAC 2009!
