Chocolate Chip Bar Cookies



Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips*
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, mix together butter and sugar until thoroughly mixed. Add vanilla and eggs, stir to combine. Add the flour and baking power, mix thoroughly. Use a spatula to evenly distribute the dough into the prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool completely before slicing. I found it was easier to slice when the whole thing was removed from the pan.
* Mini chips work well here, sometimes the regular chips are difficult to slice.
My thoughts:
Bar cookies are even easier than drop cookies and just as good. These are a little chewy and very chocolate-y. I like how the mini chips distribute so evenly and you get some chocolate in every bite. I tried to cut them using a large pumpkin cookie cutter and it worked but it would have only yielded a few cookies, by stitching to slicing, I ended up with over 18 good sized cookies.

    Quick Question: I'm assuming, per the instructions, there are to be eggs in the ingredient list...How many might that be?
