I have been looking for a good chocolate chip cookie recipe, and when I am feeling lazy I like bar cookies. I got this recipe off of epicurious, and modified it a little. I don't like nuts, so I swapped the pecans for shredded sweetened coconut. They are very yummy...
Whats your favorite chocolate chip cookie? How is it as a bar cookie?
CHOCOLATE CHIP BAR COOKIES WITH PECANS
1 pound dark brown sugar (about 2 cups firmly packed)
2/3 cup solid vegetable shortening, melted, cooled
3 large eggs
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Using electric mixer, beat sugar and shortening in large bowl to blend. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Sift flour, baking powder and salt over batter; beat to blend. Mix in chocolate chips and nuts. Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake until top is golden and tester inserted into center comes out with moist crumbs still attached, about 35 minutes. Cool in pan on rack; cut into bars.
