From Grandma's Kitchen - Chip Nut Bars

I think I must have been about 9 years old the first time I remember my mom making these, and they quickly became a family favorite.  A cross between a chocolate chip cookie and a brownie, similar to a blondie, but with the added ingredient of instant coffee makes these CHIP NUT BARS a family favorite! They are the perfect snack to have on hand during the summer with all the kids home from school, and a hit at cook outs and family reunions! Everyone will love them, guaranteed!

1 c. shortening*
1 3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. instant coffee
1 c. chopped pecans
1 pckg. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°.Mix all ingredients together. Place in greased/floured 13x9x2 pan and bake for 20-30 minutes or until toothipick inserted in center is clean. Yields 24 bars.

*This is how you know that this recipe has been around awhile. You can use Crisco if you want, but these days I substitute with butter and it works just fine.
