Recipe by Michelle Berteig
This is another recipe that has been in my family for at least 30-40 years. It is a bar-type chocolate chip cookie. I have no idea where the name came from! Enjoy!

These are perfect! I love them. Very chewy and rich. My daughter thinks they were too soft - she's wrong, I love them! And they improve with age too (well they only lasted 4 days but even on the 4th day they were great).
- 2⁄3 cup butter
- 1 lb brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 12 ounces chocolate chips (1 bag)
- chopped nuts (as desired) (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Melt the butter in a heavy 3 quart saucepan.
- Add the brown sugar and heat until the sugar is dissolved, cool in the pan. Note: do not heat too long, or let completely cool, or the sugar will get very hard and you won't be able to mix in the other ingredients.
- While still in the pan, add the eggs, flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Note: this is what the original recipe said. You could also transfer to a mixing bowl and continue from there.
- Add the chocolate chips and nuts (if desired).
- Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees F. for 30-35 minutes.
- Cut into bars while warm.
