  • 1
    Heat oven to 375ºF. Grease rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Heat butter and brown sugar in 3-quart saucepan over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted; remove from heat.
  • 2
    Beat vanilla and eggs into sugar mixture with electric mixer on medium speed. Beat in flour and baking powder on low speed. Stir in half of the nuts and 1/4 cup of the baking chips. Pour into pan. Sprinkle with remaining nuts and 1/2 cup of the baking chips.
  • 3
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until top is golden brown and center is set. Cool about 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Melt remaining 1/4 cup baking chips and the shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Pour into small resealable plastic food-storage bag; seal bag. Cut small opening in a corner of the bag. Squeeze bag to drizzle melted chips over bars. Cool until set. For 48 bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows.

Expert Tips

  • Add a flavor punch by replacing the vanilla extract with 1 1/2 tablespoons rum extract.
  • Serving these and other bar cookies is easiest if you first remove a corner piece. (And you get to nibble on that sacrificed piece!)
