Chocolate Chip Bars

There are some recipes which have a history with family.  When I was younger and learning to bake, the very first recipe I learned was for chocolate chip bars.  It’s a recipe I don’t go back to often enough, but it is tasty and just complicated enough that I need to pay attention when making it.  A couple weeks ago I needed to take some bars to work to say thank you to my colleagues for their hard work and efforts, so I looked at the ingredients I had readily accessible.  This recipe quickly met the needs for what I could do.

I took the pan to work and gave it to them there, so I didn’t get after photos of the bars, but here’s what they looked like going in:
