Ingredients: Metric Units
1/2 c. butter, softened
2 c. light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chocolate chips (or nuts)
Directions:
When we made these chewy, sweet, rich squares for my son's Sunday School class, he insisted we rename the recipe to "Big Hit Blondies." We baked a batch of these for my neice's birthday party...Fifteen minutes later, there was nothing but crumbs left. Definitely "big hit!"

(You often see blondies with walnuts or pecans; I've substituted chocolate chips - seems like a lot of folks, especially small fry, are squirrelly about nuts. Well, you know what I mean.)

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs.

Sift together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt.

Gradually add in the dry ingredients. Then add vanilla. Stir in chips. Or nuts. or M&Ms or whatever strikes your fancy. But don't use those crispy M & M's - they dissolve all to nothing in the oven leaving nothing but funny colored holes. More's the pity.

Spread the batter evenly in a 9x13 pan.

Bake at 350F for 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
