The Last Brownie

I have been trying to find the perfect brownie recipe for about 35 years. I have made many delicious recipes and I continue to try new recipes. But this Brownie I named 'The Last Brownie', meaning this was the best, the last one I needed to try. It is that good. I have never had a failure. It is the perfect chewy without being gooey. Try it and let me know what you think. It is delicious as is, but a drizzle of ganache is always a good thing.

The Last Brownie
1/2 cup butter
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate--I use Ghirardelli baking bars
Melt butter and chocolate over low heat, whisk in:
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add 3 large eggs beating well after each
Gently stir in 3/4 cup flour (don't over mix).
Fold in 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts

Bake in greased 9 inch square pan for 35-40 minutes at 350. Brownie is done when edges slightly pull away from pan. Let cool completely. These are better on day 2, if they last that long. They freeze great. I just plate them, double wrap in plastic wrap and freeze. Take them out an hour before serving, they will be delish!

Ooh, love the drizzle of gananche! Always nice to find a Last Brownie. Mine is my adapted version of Dorie's Tribute to Katherine Hepburn's brownies.
