Delicious Brownie Recipe

Here is my family's brownie recipe. I think the directions are very simple and easy to follow. The key is to not cook too long.

12 TBS butter (1 1/2 sticks)
4 squares unsweetened chocolate
2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 1/4 C flour
1 TSP salt
1 TSP baking powder
2 TSP vanilla

Heat oven to 350
Spray 9x13 baking pan with Pam

Set aside sugar
Measure and mix flour salt & baking powder in small bowl
Beat 4 eggs in small bowl

Melt butter & chocolate in saucepan over low heat stirring to blend
Add sugar, blend well
Add eggs, blend well
Add flour mixture, blend well
Add vanilla, blend well
Optional: Add 1/2-1 C nuts, blend well
Using a spatula, scrape mixture into baking pan making sure it is evenly distibuted.
Put the pan in the middle to upper part of a hot oven and bake for about 20 - 25 minutes. Remove from oven when the sides of the brownies just start to come away from the pan. Cool until manageable and cut into serving size pieces.
