My Best Recipe

A Chip Off an Old Chocolate Cookie

November 07, 1985

"This recipe has made me known for my brownies," Sharon SooHoo writes of the Blond Chocolate Chip Bars recipe she got from a cousin many years ago. "With a few alterations I was able to come up with one of the best chocolate chip type cookies baked in a pan."


3/4 cup butter or margarine

2 cups brown sugar, packed

3 eggs

2 3/4 cups flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate pieces

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Melt butter in 2 quart saucepan. Add brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Allow mixture to cool 15 minutes.

Beat eggs into sugar mixture one at a time. Combine flour, baking powder and salt and add to sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate pieces and walnuts.

Spread batter in 18x12-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees 20 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 60 squares.
