Dish Type: Chocolate
Cooking Method: Baked
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 20-30
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 25 min

  • 1 cup - Butter - not margerine
  • 1 &1/2 tsp. - vanilla
  • 1 tsp. - salt
  • 1 cup - white sugar
  • 2 cup - all purpose flour
  • 1 -12oz. pkg. - chocolate chips

Press dough into cookie sheet with sides, cover bottom of cookie sheet. Press chopped pecans into dough, if desired. Bake at 350° for 25 min - watch that edges don't get too brown. Let cool and break into cookie-sized pieces (like brittle). This can also be kept whole and frosting used to write a message on the top. I grew up on this stuff, it's the best and easiest!
