Jumbo Chocolate Chip Squares Recipe

My husband and two boys love chocolate chip cookies, but these can take the place of their favorite cookie anytime! Two hints: Don't overbake them, and do use the chocolate chunks or jumbo chips that are available these days—they really make the difference.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 2-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
