Ruth Wakefield's Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
KAF Cookie Companion
2 3/4 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup margarine or butter
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 cups chocolate chips
If you're planning on baking these bars right away, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Place the margarine or butter in a saucepan,
and melt over medium heat.Add the brown sugar,
and stir until thoroughly combined.
Add the eggs one a time,
blend thoroughly after each.
Add the dry ingredients and the chocolate chips,and stir until until the batter is combined and uniform. If not baking right away, place in the fridge for a few hours until ready to bake. Once ready to bake, pat the batter into the prepared pan. If it is chilled, it might be a bit difficult but just wet your hands and do the best you can.
Bake the bars for 24-26 minutes until the top is shiny and looks like the above photograph. Dont overbake! You dont want dry cookies! A cake tester inserted wont come out clean. Cool before cutting!
