1 teaspoon salt
Topping Ingredients
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups granulated sugar
4 Tablespoons flour
Juice from 1 large lemon (pick seeds out first with tines of fork)
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350o F. Line a 9 x 12-inch pan with foil, shiny side up, leaving enough over ends to lift out when cooled and before cutting. Be careful not to puncture foil.

Dough: Mix 1-3/4 cups flour, powdered sugar, butter, and 1 teaspoon salt very well. Spread out with the back of a spoon in bottom of foil-lined pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes to a very light, golden brown. While this is baking, mix the topping.

VERY CHOCOLATE BROWNIES          > Back to Top <

Begin with a box of brownie mix. The brand is up to you. The instructions on the box will give you a list of ingredients to add to the dry mix. Substitute chocolate syrup for one-fourth of the liquid ingredients. Add one cup of chocolate chips and one cup of walnuts. Once you have thoroughly mixed all of the ingredients together, pour the mix into a pan two-thirds the recommended size. This will make the individual portions thicker and chewier! Place the pan into the oven and bake at 320o F, not 350o F as usually recommended. This will require extended baking time.

OLD FASHIONED BROWNIES          > Back to Top <
 
4 ounces of good bitter chocolate (typically 4 squares), melted
4 eggs, well beaten
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup shortening (prefers Crisco)
2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, chopped by hand (optional)
1 clean flat paper bag and some paper towels

Preheat oven to 350o F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. In a small glass bowl, gently melt the chocolate in the microwave (take care not to over cook). Set aside. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl. Beat in the sugar, then the shortening. Add the vanilla extract and mix well. Beat in the flour, salt, and baking powder and then mix in the melted chocolate. Fold in the nuts (if desired). The batter will be thick.

Scrape batter into greased pan and smooth the surface with a spatula. Bake for 25 minutes, then test to see if it is still too soft by touching the surface. It should not stick to finger. It may need 5 more minutes. The toothpick test does not work as the center will still be wet when done. You want it moist.

When ready, remove from the oven and immediately cut into squares. With a spatula, take out the squares and place them on the clean flat paper bag, separating the squares from each other. They will be hot and sticky to handle, but this is her secret to success - she said that you must ignore the rest of the world until you have removed the brownies from the pan (don't answer the door or the phone!). The brownies will set wrong if left in the pan. Cover them with one layer of paper towels and let them cool enough so that they will no longer stick together. It is best to store them in a tin with wax paper between layers. Enjoy as is or make decadent brownie sundaes with them!
