2 squares (1 ounce size) Baker's unsweetened chocolate
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts


Melt chocolate with shortening over low heat-a double boiler works better for this. Mix flour with baking powder and salt. Beat eggs well; then gradually beat in the sugar. Blend in the chocolate mixture and vanilla. Add flour mixture and blend well, stir in nuts. Spread in a greased 8-inch square pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes (for moist, chewy brownies); or about 30 minutes or until tester comes out clean when inserted in the center of the brownies (this will be cakelike brownies). Cool in the pan, then cut into squares.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I doubled the recipe and it turned out very good. I used pecans for the nuts beause that's what I had but next time I'll use walnuts. The brownies were very nice and moist. I recommend this recipe.
