I was wanting to make some brownies for the family picnic today...so I looked through my cookbooks. I saw a recipe but I wanted to give it a little something extra. I love amaretto...
|Pic taken with my phone...not bad!|
2 sticks butter, melted
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract (I think it needed a little more)
3/4 cup cocoa
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
optional: sliced almonds for topping
Preheat oven to 350*. Lightly grease a 13x9 inch baking pan. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine melted butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add cocoa. Mix until well blended. Add flour, baking powder, and salt, beating well. Pour into greased baking pan. (OPTIONAL: sprinkle sliced almonds on top) Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
