2tbaking powder
1⁄2tsalt
1cmargarine (i use really inexpensive store margarine)
2 1⁄4cdark brown sugar, packed
3 eggs
2csemisweet chocolate morsels
1tvanilla
1cchopped walnuts optional

Instructions

Prehat oven to 350

Combine softened margarine and brown sugar.  Beat in eggs.

Sift together the dry ingredients and add (gently) to shortening, sugar and eggs. Blend well. Stir in vanilla.

Fold in chocolate morsels (and nuts if you wish)

Pour into 10x15 greased pan.  Bake 25 to 30 minutes - do not overbake. 

Let cool for a while in the pan before cutting into squares. 

 

 

Notes

If you don't have enough brown sugar, you can substitue granulated sugar and about 1 Tablespoon of molasses per cup. 

I don't know how well these keep or store because there are never any left over past a day!!
