Now my momma’s brownies are by far the best brownies around.
(And I might fight ya if you say otherwise!)
She uses the recipe from the 1963 Betty Crocker Cooky Book (one of the best cookbooks I own BTW)
and I’m not sure why but even when I follow the same recipe mine are not quite as delectable.
(She must do something secret I’m not aware of…)
Here is that recipe:
Brownies from the Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book
4 squares of unsweetened chocolate (4 oz)
2/3 cup of shortening
2 cups of sugar
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350.
Grease a 13″ x 9″ x 2″ pan.
Melt chocolate and shortening over low heat.
Beat in sugar and eggs.
Blend flour, baking powder, and salt and stir in.
Mix in nuts.
Spread in pan and bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.
Cut into bars!
