Grandma J's Congo Bars
My grandmother used to make these in mass quantities and store them in #10 cans with a slice of bread for freshness. We knew that we would always get a cookie before we left to go back home.
I used mostly butterscotch chips in this batch since I was mostly out of chocolate chips. Thanks to my mom for navigating the computer to send me her recipe!
2/3 c. cooking oil, butter, or crisco
2 c. brown sugar
3 beaten eggs
Mix, then add
1 t. vanilla
1/4 c. water
Combine and add to liquid mixture
2 1/2 c. flour
1 t. salt
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1 c. chopped nuts
1 c. chocolate chips/butterscotch chips etc.
Spread into 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake at 375* until golden brown - approx. 30 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting.
