Katharine Hepburn's Brownies
The best recipe I have for brownies comes from a friend who got it from a magazine article about Katharine Hepburn. It is, apparently, her family's.
|1 stick||(8 tablespoons) butter|
|2 squares||unsweetened chocolate|
|1/4 cup||all-purpose flour|
|1 cup||chopped walnuts (optional)|
- Preparation 1. Melt together 1 stick butter and 2 squares unsweetened chocolate and take the saucepan off the heat.
- 2. Stir in 1 cup sugar, add 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and beat the mixture well.
- 3. Stir in 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. (In the original recipe, 1 cup chopped walnuts is added here as well.)
- 4. Bake the brownies in a buttered and floured 8-inch-square pan at 325°F for about 40 minutes.
- You can cut these brownies into squares, once they have cooled, and eat them out of the pan, but it is so much nicer to pile them on a fancy plate, from which people are going to eat them with their hands anyway. If you want to smarten up your act you can put a square of brownie on a plate with a little blob of créme fraîche and a scattering of shaved chocolate.
