Church Potluck Recipe: Congo Squares
Have you ever signed up to bring chocolate chip cookies to the next Potluck at church and you are too tired to make them? Well, here is a great alternative.
1/3 lb. (1 stick and 2 ½ tablespoons) real butter
1 box light brown sugar (about 2 1/3 cups firmly packed)
2 ¾ cup sifted flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans
1 package (12 oz.) Hershey chocolate chips
Stir together butter and light brown sugar using a mixer. Add eggs. Then add flour, baking powder, salt. Mix well and add pecans and chocolate chips. Bake in a 9 x 13 inch greased and floured pan for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool before cutting into squares.
