Chewy Brownies from the Jr League

I'm thinking I'll go ahead and try this brownie recipe from the Jr. League's cookbook. I haven't had a whole lot of luck with homemade brownie recipes. I mean, they're chocolate and I'll eat them. My boys will eat them, but remind me that they "don't taste like brownies". We'll see how it goes.


Chewy Brownies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter

6 tablespoons baking cocoa

2 cups sugar

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chopped nuts (optional, I left them out!)

Directions: Combine the butter and baking cocoa in the top of a double broiler over simmering water (or use two different-sized pans if you don’t have a double broiler). Cook until the butter is melted, stirring frequently. Remove the mixture to a bowl. Stir in the sugar and eggs quickly. Fold in the flour, vanilla and nuts. Pour into a buttered 8X8 inch or 9X9 inch baking pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes; do not overbake. Remove to a wire rack and let cool for 1 hour. Cut into squares.

Makes 12 servings.
