Yes, I am a blonde, so I guess I am a little biased toward this recipe. It is one of my favorite brownie/cookie recipes, and I have been making it for over 10 years. I found it in the July 1998 edition of Bon Appétit magazine. They had found this creation at the S-Moores Cafe in Augusta, GA. It is a winner! It is easy, rich, decadent and delish! Here it is…
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
10 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
2 cups light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips (I use 1 cup)
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13×9” baking pan. I use the wrapper from the stick of butter. Combine flour, baking powder, salt & baking soda.
Add sugar to melted butter and whisk to blend.
Whisk in eggs and vanilla.
Gradually stir in flour mixture.
Add chips & pecans.
Spread batter in pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. I know, I know. When this comes out of the oven, you will want to dig in with a spoon. DON’T DO IT! It’s worth the wait to let it cool and then cut into squares. ENJOY!
