* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
* 2 eggs
* 2 tablespoons milk
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
2. In large bowl, cream shortening, eggs and brown sugar. Add in milk and vanilla extract and mix well. Gradually add in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until well blended.

Babe Ruth Bars

* 1 cup peanut butter
* 1 cup white corn syrup
* 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 6 cups cornflakes cereal
* 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
* 2/3 cup peanuts

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the peanut butter, corn syrup, brown sugar and white sugar. Cook stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and quickly mix in the cornflakes, chocolate chips and peanuts until evenly coated.
2. Press the entire mixture gently into a buttered 9x13 inch baking dish. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.

To prevent bar cookies from crumbling, always cool them in the pan before cutting.

To test bar cookies for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the pan; it should come out clean (unless the recipe specifies otherwise). Other cookies are done when they're firm at the edges.
