This recipe for Katherine Hepburn’s chocolate brownies is taken from “A Harried Cook’s Take on Some Fast Food” by Laurie Colwin, published Gourmet magazine February 1992. I am retyping this as it appeared, but I bolded the ingredients so you’ll know what you need.
- Melt together 1 stick of butter & 2 squares of unsweentened chocolate and take the saucepan off the stove.
- Stir in 1 cup sugar, add 2 eggs & 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and beat the mixture well.
- Stir in 1/4 cup all purpose flour & 1/4 teaspoon of salt. (In the original recipe, 1 cup of chopped walnuts is added here as well.) – that’s Colwin’s note.
- Bake the brownies in a buttered 8-inch-square pan at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.
Great gooey brownies will magically appear. – my note.
Good luck and let me know how they turn out.
