Why I Love This Recipe
Simple no fuss brownies from Cousin Susan
Ingredients You'll Need
½ cup cocoa or 2 squares (2 oz.) unsweetened baker's chocolate.
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter.
1 cup sugar.
1/4 cup flour.
1 teaspoon vanilla.
Pinch of salt.
1 cup roughly chopped walnuts or pecans.
Heat oven to 325 degrees.
Melt butter in saucepan with cocoa and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine sugar, flour, nuts and salt. Add to the cocoa-butter mixture. Stir until just combined.
Pour into a greased 8 x 8-inch-square pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Do not overbake; the brownies should be gooey. Let cool, then cut into bars.
