From THE ART OF FINE BAKING by Paula Peck
Simon and Schuster, 1970
6 ounces baking chocolate
3/4 cup butter
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups walnuts
Set oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour an 11" X 16" jelly roll pan. Melt chocolate and butter together. Set aside to cool slightly.
Beat eggs and sugar together until fluffy. Add vanilla. Stir in chocolate mixture, then the flour, salt, and nuts. Mix only until combined. (Too much mixing will mix in more air for a cake-like browie.)
Pour into prepared pan, bake about 25 minutes or until top looks dry. (You can cut while still warm with a pizza cutter.)
Serving suggestion: Fresh strawberries with chocolate syrup!
