Golden Brownies

This is an oldie-but-goody from my mom’s kitchen. Easy and yummy, and there are lots of ways to use them, but they really are best served right out of the oven.

This time, I made them in a slightly-larger-than-called-for pan so that they’d be thin enough to cut out with a cookie cutter. I’m sticking them in the freezer until Valentine’s day, and then I’ll decorate them with the boys’ initials or something (we definitely don’t go all out for Valentine’s Day, but I thought this would be a fun treat).

way tinier than i'd planned on, but i have no idea what happened to my normal-sized heart cookie cutter, except that it might have rusted and been pitched.

Or, you can serve ice cream and your favorite toppings over a warm golden brownie for dessert.

Golden Brownies
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Generously grease a 15x10x1″ pan. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Then, in a mixer, cream butter, sugars and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating completely after each addition. Slowly add the flour mixture, and beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Put dough in pan and spread evenly (use a spatula). Bake for 25-35 minutes, until golden brown.

Let cool a bit, cut and serve!
