What makes this recipe so special?

It’s one of those desserts that doesn’t require a lot of fancy ingredients, just the essentials:  Flour, butter, eggs, sugar, chocolate chips, etc… It’s the perfect treat to make for the fam on a long weekend at home, but just as good to make for a large crowd or bring to your next BBQ this summer.  And did I mention, it is REALLY simple to make?!
