Amaretto Brownies

I was wanting to make some brownies for the family picnic 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!

Amaretto Brownies

2 sticks butter, melted
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract (I think it needed a little more)
4 eggs
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.
