Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

q       2 ¾ cups unbleached all purpose flour

q       2 ½ tsps baking powder

q       ½ tsp salt

q       1- 1/3  unsalted butter, melted

q       2 ¼ cups brown sugar

q       3 large eggs

q       2 cups chocolate chips

ü    Preheat oven to 350F.  Lightly grease a 10 x 15 inch jelly roll pan, a 14 in deep dish pizza pan, or similar sized pan.

ü    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

ü    In another large bowl, combine the melted butter and brown sugar, stirring until smooth.

ü    Allow mixture to cool slightly.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the flour mixture, then the chocolate chips. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.

ü    Bake the bars for 24 to 26 minutes, until their top is shiny and golden. Don’t overbake or the bars will be dry: a cake tester inserted in the center will not come out clean. Remove the bars from the oven and cool to room temperature before cutting.

These are extra good and makes a lot too!  YUMMY!!
