Combine Your Ingredients

In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Put the light brown sugar in a large bowl, add the butter and stir to combine. Cool to room temperature. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing just until a smooth batter is formed. If using the chips, stir them into the batter.
