Brown Butter Brownies

By Stephanie

These are ridiculous!  Serious.  Don’t even figure out the fat content…just make them and enjoy. 

Brownies for some reason, are something I have always had trouble with.  I can remember as a kid making brownies and the NEVER turned out right.  That is still usually the case.  So I hardly ever make them.  However a friend sent this too me and OH BABY.  They are dense and fudgy and I am totally hooked. 



Brown Butter Brownies

Makes 12

10 TABLESPOONS (yes, I know) butter

pinch salt

1 1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/3 cup flour

1 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

1 cup chopped nuts (Optional)

1/2 c chocolate chips

In large sauté pan melt butter of medium heat without stirring.  You can occasionally swirl pan but don’t stir.  Continue doing this until butter is brown and smells nutty.  Let cool slightly.  In large mixing bowl add in sugar, cocoa powder, salt and flour.  Add in melted butter and stir just until combine.  Add in eggs one at a time and stir about 20 times.  Add in vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts if using.  Pour into a 8X8 pan.  I put two sheets of tin foil so they make a + in the bottom of the pan with the sides overhanging so that you can pull it out of the pan.  Spray with non-stick spray.  Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.  Do not overcook.  When done pull brownies out of pan to let cool so they don’t overtake especially in a glass pan.  Cut into 12 squares and TRY not to eat them all!!
