1 pkg. brown sugar (2 cups) 1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cups butter 1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs 1 pkg chocolate chips
2 3/4 cups flour 1 cup walnuts (optional)
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sauce pan melt butter. Add brown sugar and vanilla and mix. Remove pan from burner and let stand while sifting flour, baking powder and salt together. When butter mixture is cool enough to put your hand on the bottom of the pan, add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Stir in dry ingredients and mix well. Add chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into 13x9x2 pan. Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool and cut into squares and enjoy.
