These are Phillip's favorites. He has never been a huge chocolate fan so these are perfect--just enough chocolate, but not too much. Basically, these are chocolate chip bar cookies.
3 dozen bars
Preheat oven to 350
2 2/3 Cup flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 Cup butter
2 1/4 Cup light brown sugar
1 C chopped nuts
1 6 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Grease a 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 " pan. (I usually line it with aluminum foil and then spray with Baker's Secret)
Sift dry ingredients together. Melt butter and stir in brown sugar. Cool 10 minutes and add eggs. Stir well to combine. Stir in dry ingredients, nuts, and chocolate chips. Spring in pan.
Bake 20-25 minutes, until center springs back when lightly touched. Cool on a rack and cut into bars.
