Now This Is My Kind of Cookie

Chunky Chocolate Cookie Squares (Memaw's)

2 1/2 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup corn syrup
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans
1 package (8 ounces) Baker's Semi-Sweet chocolate or 2 packages Sweet chocolate cut into 1/2 inch chunks

Mix flour, soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl with mixer set at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Slowly beat in corn syrup and then egg and vanilla. Beat in flour mixture until blended.

Stir in pecans and half of the chocolate chunks. Spread evenly in ungreased 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1 inch jelly roll pan. Sprinkle remaining chocolate on top.

Bake in 350 degree F oven 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on rack. Cut into 2 1/2 inch squares.

Makes 2 dozen squares.
