Cookie Brittle
This wonderful recipe appeared on a chocolate chip cookie package years ago, and
I've never seen it since. It's a marvelous twist on the traditional chocolate
chip cookie recipe, using tender, melting shortbread as the base.

Type of Prep : Bake
Cuisine : U.S. Regional
Occasion : Back to School, Fall, Winter


a.. 1 cup butter, softened
b.. 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
c.. 1/4 tsp. salt
d.. 1 cup sugar
e.. 2 cups flour
f.. 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
g.. 1 cup chopped pecans, OR more chocolate chips

Combine butter, vanilla, salt and sugar and beat together until well blended,
using the back of a spoon. Stir in flour until just mixed. Add chocolate chips
and nuts. Press cookie dough evenly into a 15x10" jelly roll pan. Bake at 375
degrees for 15-25 minutes, until light golden brown. Check at the 15 minute bake
time, then watch cookies carefully; they go from light brown to burnt around the
edges very quickly. Let cool in pan. When cool, break into irregular pieces.
