Mom's Brown Sugar Bars

  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (12-oz) package semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped almonds

Beat the butter and brown sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla beating until well blended.

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to the butter mixture, beating until well blended.

Press the dough into an ungreased 15-x10-inch jelly- roll pan.

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Place the pan on a wire rack and sprinkle chocolate morsels evenly over the warm cookie. Let the pan stand for 5 minutes; spread the chocolate evenly over the top. Sprinkle evenly with chopped almonds. Cool completely in the pan on a wire-rack. Cut into squares.
