Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 baking dish with aluminum foil. Lightly grease with shortening. Set aside
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Layer - In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, light brown sugar, and white granulated sugar.
Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix. Slowly add in the all-purpose flour ½ cup at a time and mix thoroughly.
Add in the salt and baking powder. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread the cookie dough layer on the baking dish and spread all over. Make sure the layer is even.
