a "ready-made" tornado!

|peanut butter cookies and saucepan cocoa brownies|
colder weather makes me want to bake!
i copied this saucepan cocoa brownies recipe out of
laura ingalls/little house on the praire coobook many moons ago
and it goes like this,,,
1/2 c. butter
2 lrg eggs
6 tbs. unsweetened cocoa
1 c. gran. sugar
3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 c. coarsely chopped nuts
grease 8x8" glass pan
preheat oven to 325
combine butter and cocoa in medium saucepan
and heat over low heat, stirring, until melted.
set aside to cool.
when cocoa is lukewarm, beat in sugar and vanilla.
beat in eggs, one at a time.
add the flour and salt
and beat just until combined.
stir in nuts.
pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.
hope you are enjoying something comforting this week.
