Eat Your Brownies!

Ok, not every day…. but it won’t kill you to have a good one sometimes. I found an easy recipe in an old time cookbook. The name of the cookbook escapes me, but this simple recipe never did. It is a six ingredient masterpiece. All of the things you need should be in a simply stocked panty
1 stick salted butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
6 Tbs. dutch processed cocoa
1 tsp. good vanilla extract
Melt butter, add sugar, then eggs and vanilla and combine all well. Add flour and cocoa powder and put it in a buttered 9×9 dish and for bake at 350 for exactly 25 minutes…. cool completely and then cut.
For a change of pace add different stuff after you put the batter in the pan. This time around I put white chips and some 60% dark chips on top before baking and it added another dimension of flavor and a bit of a chocolate crunch. Add your favorite nuts or even dried cranberries for a different twist.
