Recipe type: Cookies
Cuisine: American
Serves: 48 bars
  • 1⅓ cups butter, melted
  • 4 cups brown sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons pure vanilla
  • 4 cups unbleached, all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon quality sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Mix the brown sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Stir to thoroughly combine.
  2. Beat the eggs into the sugar mixture until they are thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Add flour, salt and baking powder, carefully stirring until all dry ingredients have been absorbed into the batter and the batter is smooth.
  4. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips.
  5. Bake in a greased 12x18 baking pan (or two 9x13 pans) at 350 degree for 25 minutes. Don't be tempted to overbake these. You want them to be chewy and wonderful. The edges will just be beginning to brown and pull away from the pan, but the bars will be very light in color. Trust me. They're done! Allow them to cool on a wire cooling rack.
  6. Cut into 2-inch squares and serve.
  7. Enjoy!
