brownieI don’t have anything great to write about brownies. They speak for themselves. They are unsurpassed sensual and visual delights, which I need now, because it’s been a really hard month. I’ve been down with some variation of illness for nearly three weeks. I’m at the bottom of my physical reserves and optimism. I can’t eat such a delight yet, but I can look at it. You could make it! You could eat it for me. What do you think? Wanna try?

 Brownies:  350 preheated oven. Butter and flour baking pan

 2 1/2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips

2 sticks of unsalted butter

1 cup sugar

4 large eggs

1/4 teaspoon of salt

3/4 cup all purpose flour 

Stir chocolate & butter in saucepan over medium low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.

Combine sugar, eggs and salt in another saucepan. Whisk over low heat until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Do not allow to boil.

 Pour this mixture into the chocolate sugar mixture and add vanilla. Add flour, spread in pan and bake. (this is SO good to eat out of the bowl before baking)

Bake 30 -35 minutes. Bake until knife inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Cool completely before eating. (good luck on that part)  The frosting, drizzle and walnuts are up to you.
