I’ve been told that one of my greatest talents in life is my ability to invite myself to anything. It’s true. I have a knack. Cringe worthy, yes. Useful? Depends on the circumstance.

Well, I have invited myself into an actual family. Yes, a family. The Tueller sisters. If you don’t know a Tueller, you haven’t lived. They are a beautiful, happy, funny, insanely smart, inspiring family.

The Tueller Family just two years before I was born. Man. If they had just waited for me.

But enough about them. Let’s talk about their recipe. One day Betsy T. showed up at a baptism with a plate of these beauties. I grabbed her shoulder and didn’t let go until she scribbled the recipe for me. Today I make these chewies often.

Do you remember those captions in The National Geographic where they did a close-up of something and you had to guess the object? Well, guess this close up.

They are my go-to when I don’t have time to make full-on chocolate chip cookies. How could these be any less time consuming you may ask? I don’t know. They just are. Perhaps it’s the bar cookie part of the recipe, they just seem to easy and fast. Love these babies. But not as much as I love the Tueller women.

Tueller Chocolate Chip Chewies

2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3 eggs
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs, salt and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips. Sample dough. Spread the rest on 9×13 cookie sheet (jelly roll pan). Bake 15-20 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

Score and serve. And don't make fun of my uneven scoring.Double up on the chewies if you have a big crowd. Same amount of work, twice as many chewies.

    Thanks for the kind words. No cringing that you invite yourself to anything Tueller. If I still baked, I would go make a batch right now.

    Tueller women always make you feel like the best guest they could wish for in fact they are like chocolate, I never met any I didn’t like and they make you feel good when you’re down.

    Excuse me while I go bake some Tueller chocolate chip chewies.

    ha ha… love that description by Sue of the Tueller ladies. I only know 2 (make that 3 now that Becca is adopted in) but what you said holds true for the ones I know (and love)

    and speaking of love… I love these Tueller chewies. Dang you Becca. Stop posting such yummy stuff. My waistline can’t handle it. (kidding, of course… about the posting, not about the waistline!)
