Theatrical Thursday RECIPE - Katharine Hepburn Brownies

Here is a recipe that came from the 1975 edition of the Ladies Home Journal, where Katharine Hepburn gave her family's recipe for brownies.  We found them to be a nice fudgy and gooey brownie.

Katharine Hepburn Brownies

8 tbsp. unsalted butter,
   plus more for greasing
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup roughly chopped walnuts
1⁄4 cup flour
1⁄4 tsp. fine salt

1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Butter an 8-inch square baking pan. Line the pan with parchment paper and butter the paper.

2. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and stir to make a smooth batter. Add the flour, salt, and walnuts and stir until incorporated.

3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool on a rack. Cut into squares and serve.  Makes 9 brownies, (we cut ours smaller).

A small tribute to Katharine Hepburn
