Chocolate Chip Walnut Delight Bar
(Makes about 50 pieces)
1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
a pinch of salt
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups finely chopped walnuts
6 Tbs. melted butter
1 1/4 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit
Grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
Preheat oven to 350° with rack in the middle.
Combine flour, baking powder and 1 tsp. sugar.
Cream ½ cup butter and sugar in a stand-up mixer; add egg and mix well. Add the flour mixture and mix until combined. Press the dough with floured hands into the well-greased baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the crust. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 3 minutes.
In the meantime prepare the topping. Beat the eggs for about 3 minutes on high speed in the mixer until they are thick and foamy. Stir in nuts, vanilla and melted butter.
Remove pan from oven and spread topping over chocolate layer. Bake, until set for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into small pieces. Store in an airtight container.
