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!
- 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)
- 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.
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).
I liked these, but expected them to be a bit more tender. They are good softened in the microwave, but are a bit hard at room temp. The flavor is good, and I found them easy to prepare. I added 1/2 butterscotch and 1/2 semisweet chips. Thanks for sharing.
I agree this is very rich and wonderful. I followed the recipe except used butter flavor crisco instead of butter. Served warm with ice cream. Sorry no picture this time but maybe next time. DH was saying mmmmmmmmmmmm. Thanks Lisa
