This recipe came from the 1st/2nd grade classroom at Centerville Elementary. They read a book about a real Mexican-Jewish-American bakery, Los Bagels Bakery and Cafe, in Arcata, CA. This recipe was in the book, and Grace brought it home to try out. It was simple and good.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup margarine (Grace used butter Crisco)
2 cups brown sugar
2 1/3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup mixed nuts (Grace left these out)
Melt butter and margarine. While it is melting, cream brown sugar and eggs, then add melted butter and margarine. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt and stir into sugar mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Pour mixture into greased 9 X13 pan and bake 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees.
