3/4 c. shortening, melted
2 1/4 c. brown sugar
2 1/2 t. baking powder
2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1 c. chocolate chips, I added 2 cups
1/2 c. chopped walnuts, optional
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam.
Melt shortening. Add brown sugar and mix well.
Add eggs, one at a time and beat well after each addition.
Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
Add chocolate chips and nuts.
Spread into a greased 9x13 pan.
Bake in a 350º oven for 25-30 minutes.
Cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.
Dana’s Notes: These would also be great with raisins, instead of chocolate chips. You could also add 1-2T rum or bourbon.
