My absolute favorite kitchen utensils are our three cookie sheets, which came to us from each of my beloved grandmothers a”h.
I’m sure that nothing would’ve given either one of them more nachat than the knowledge that the Resident Ulpanistit – who happens to be the eldest great-granddaughter to both my grandmothers a”h – regularly uses their respective cookie sheets to produce yummy treats, like these bars:
Adapted from ???? (I tried doing a search to figure out where I got the original recipe, but to no avail. If you recognize the source of these bars, please leave a comment, and I’ll update the post accordingly.)
- 2/3 cup oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp water
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Beat oil, sugars, vanilla and eggs. Add dry ingredients and the water, and mix through. Stir in chocolate chips.
Put batter into a baking-paper-lined 11½ x 17½ rimmed cookie sheet (AKA a jelly roll pan). Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes.
Remove from oven, and use a knife to form a marble pattern. Return to oven for an additional 21 minutes.
Remove the pan from oven. Cut into bars and let cool in pan.
