brownies

My family loved brownies and I like to use the One-Bowl Brownies on the Bakers unsweetened chocolate package.
Because I cannot leave well enough alone and because I like a thicker brownie, I make the recipe with 1 1/2 times the ingredients, add a bit of salt, and add walnuts.

Put into a pyrex two quart bowl and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes:
6 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter
Take out and stir until chocolate is melted.

Stir in:
3 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

One at a time stir in:
5 large or 4 extra large eggs

Stir in:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup walnuts

 Grease 9 by 13 inch pyrex pan. Spread in batter. Bake 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Thanks for the recipe and love the scrappy quilt as well. I think I've seen that one in a book - maybe one of the Nickel Quilt books???
