1cupunsalted butterat room temperature
1 1/2cupslight brown sugar
2teaspoonspure vanilla extract
3cupssemi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy (about 1 minute). Beat in the vanilla and eggs. Stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a large rubber spatula or wooden spoon, spread the dough onto the prepared baking sheet and spread into an even layer. The dough may be thin, but will puff and close holes during baking.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until cooked through and edges are lightly browned. Let cool and cut into squares.
Source: Eat2GatherThe baking sheet I use is about 12x17, but I have also used other sizes. You may need to adjust the baking time depending on the size of your baking sheet.Optional: Before baking, sprinkle regular M&M's onto top of dough and lightly press. This is one of our favorite additions!
