Brownies from Molly’s Kitchen

cookie dough brownies (4)

Sometimes the best thing you can do is make a brownie! You know, the melt in the mouth, ooey gooey kind? I have had a horrible time making my own brownie recipe that we all love. We like ours super gooey, and I’ve thrown many batches away after butchering the recipes. However, when I concocted this one a few years back I decided I’d stick with it, because it fits the brownie craving perfectly. There are a few more steps than just a simple brownie, but you can just make the brownie base if you’d rather not make the other 2 layers. I’ll warn you though….it just won’t be the same.

Brownie: 2 cups sugar, 1-½ cups AP flour, ½ c. cocoa, ½ tsp. Salt, 1-cup vegetable oil, 4 eggs, 2 tsp. Vanilla, ½ cups walnuts or pecans (optional)

Combine these and pour into greased 9x13 pan.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes clean.
