You can’t go wrong with brownies at potluck

I forgot I had a potluck to attend last weekend, so I reached for an easy, reliable and always welcome recipe: Katharine Hepburn Brownies. You can find these brownies all over the Internet (at Patti Cakes, at Angelnina’s Cottage and The Gourmet Project, to name three).  I found it in my Gourmet cookbook. You cannot, however, find these brownies left over after a potluck.

Katharine Hepburn brownies

  • 2 squares (ounces) unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 stick (1/4 pound) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)

1.  Melt the chocolate with the butter over low heat in 2-quart saucepan.

2.  Remove from heat and stir in the sugar, eggs and vanilla; blend well.

3.  Stir in the flour and salt and walnuts, if desired.

4.  Pour the batter into an buttered and floured 8-inch square pan. Bake 35-40 minutes at 325 degrees F or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool, then cut and serve. Makes 16-20 brownies (depending on how you cut them).
