Polka- Dot Cookie Bars

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon almond extract- or just use vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package white chips- leave 1/4 cup aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extract.
Combine in another bowl the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and white chips; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Spread into greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle top with 1/4 remaining chips.
Bake at 375 for 18-23 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

I'm sure you could make this in a 9x13 for a more brownie like bar.
