Cookie Recipes - Brownies

These are a drier, more cookie-like brownie. They're really good with the chocolate chip "frosting".

1 1/3 c. flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c. butter, melted
1 c. cocoa
2 c. white sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F. (OR preheat to 325°F if using dark pan.)**
Grease 9" x 13" pan.
Stir together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
In large bowl, stir together melted butter, cocoa, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix in this order so that the mixture is cool when you add eggs.
Mix dry ingredients into wet.
At this point add nuts if you choose. Then pour batter into a greased pan.
Bake a for 35 minutes or until it just starts to pull away from sides. (Keep an eye on them near the end so the edges don't burn.)
When finished, place pan on cooling rack. While brownies are still hot, put chocolate chips on top. Wait 5 minutes until chips melt and then spread gently for frosting.

**NOTE: Adult assistance required when using oven or using sharp kitchen tools.
