Brownies ( chocolate amaretto )

Yield: 1 batch

Measure Ingredient

Ingredients:

1 cup Shortening

⅔ cup Baking cocoa

2 cup Sugar

4 Eggs

2 tbs Amaretto/almond flavor

1½ cup Flour

½ tsp Salt

Handful sliced almonds (opt)

AMARETTO FROSTING:

¼ cup Butter

2 tbs Half-and-half

3 tbs Baking cocoa

1 ds Salt

2 ½ cup Confectioner's sugar

2 tbs Amaretto

Directions:

Melt shortening with cocoa (I use the microwave), cool. Beat eggs, gradually adding sugar. Add shortening mixture, Amaretto, salt, and flour. Beat until well mixed. Pour batter into a lightly greased 13x9x2" baking pan. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes; cool. Frost with Amaretto Frosting, sprinkle with sliced almonds (or arrange in flowery patterns to be fancy). Cut into squares.

Amaretto Frosting

Melt butter and cocoa together (the microwave works well for this), cool. Stir in half-and-half. Add confectioner's sugar, salt, and amaretto, stirring until smooth.
