Again, another family cookbook recipe. It reminds me of growing up and my childhood when I make these recipes, which I really love!
Preheat the over to 350
Melt in saucepan: 1/4 cup of butter (or butter substitute)
Stir in 1 cup of brown sugar until dissolved
Let the ingredients cool slightly then beat in well: 1 egg and 1 tsp of vanilla
In a separate container sift a 1/2 cup of flour and then add 1 tsp of baking powder and a 1/2 tsp of salt.
Mix all the ingredients together (add semi-sweet chocolate chips if desired, which I did because chocolate chips are amazing!)
Pour the batter into a greased 9×9 pan (I doubled the recipe so I used a 9×13 pan)
Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes
Cut into bars when cool
