  • 1 cup butter 2 sticks
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 & 1/2 or 2 cups chocolate chips


  • Beat butter with sugars. Add egg, almond, and salt. Beat in flour. Spread in a 9x13 pan. (Wet your fingers if the dough sticks).
  • Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes, or until it is set on the edges (and set in the middle, too, if you like them to be a little crispy).
  • Sprinkle generously with chocolate chips immediately after baking. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so (this is hard.
  • Sometimes I cheat and stick it back in the still-warm oven, but if you do this only leave it in for about a minute or two, otherwise your chocolate will get all weird on you.)
  • Spread the chips around when they have melted.
  • Don't eat all at one time.
