  • 8 oz regular salted butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour Spoon and level -- (15 oz) -- weigh if you have scale
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt optional
  • 2 12 oz packages of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups 220 grams chopped pecans (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cream the butter and sugars, beat in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients and blend in. Add chips and nuts. Spread in a greased 15x 10 inch baking pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until bars appear set. Cool and cut into bars.
  • For a half batch, use a 13x9 inch pan. My half batches always take about 20 minutes, but this will vary depending on your oven.
