These are kissing-cousins of "Blondies"
which are kissing-cousins of "Brownies". They are thick
chocolate chip bars that are delectable. Butterscotch chips can
be substituted and are really delicious, also. The walnuts are
optional, although I prefer adding them.
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 ounces)
1 cup chopped walnuts
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy,
about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs until thoroughly blended. Beat
in the remaining ingredients until blended.
Spread batter evenly into a greased 9x13-inch
baking pan and bake in a 350x oven for about 30 minutes or until
a cake tester, inserted in center, comes out clean and top is
golden brown. Do not overbake.
Allow to cool in pan and then cut into squares
or bars to serve. A faint sprinkling of powdered sugar is a nice
optional. Yields about 48 (1 1/2-inch) squares.
