Cousin Susan's Katharine Hepburn Brownies
  • Cooking Time: 35 Minutes
  • Servings: 8
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • ½ cup cocoa or 2 squares (2 oz.) unsweetened baker's chocolate.
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter.
  • 1 cup sugar.
  • 2 eggs.
  • 1/4 cup flour.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Pinch of salt.
  • 1 cup roughly chopped walnuts or pecans.
  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, flour, nuts and salt. Add to the cocoa-butter mixture. Stir until just combined.
  4. 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.
