Yield: 9 Large brow
|1 \N||Stick or 1/2 cup butter|
|4 ounces||Unsweetened chocolate; chopped|
|1 teaspoon||Pure vanilla extract|
|1 cup||All-purpose flour|
|1 cup||Chopped pecans|
In a small saucepan, melt together the butter and chocolate, stirring occasionally. It?s very important to let the mixture cool before using.
Preheat the oven to 350. Butter a 13x9x2-inch baking pan or 9x9x2-inch square baking pan.
In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat together the eggs and salt until light and foamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the butter mixture until blended. Then beat in the sugar and vanilla until well mixed.
With a rubber spatula, fold in the flour and pecans. Scrape into the prepared pan.
Bake the 13x9x2-inch pan in the 350 oven until still slightly soft to the touch and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with crumbs attached to it, about 30 minutes. Or bake the 9x9x2-inch square pan for 40 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Then cut into rectangles or squares, as large or as small as you want.
