Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 9-inch square pan with 2 lengths of foil, positioning the sheets perpendicular to each other and allowing the excess to extend beyond the edges of the pan.
  3. Lightly grease the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  4. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, then add the chocolate and stir over low heat until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  5. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar and vanilla until combined.
  6. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  7. Add the flour and stir vigorously for 1 full minute, until the batter loses its graininess, becomes smooth and glossy, and pulls away a bit from the sides of the saucepan.
  8. Be sure to mix for the full minute and to stir the mixture vigorously.
  9. Stir in the chopped nuts, if using.
  10. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake until the center feels almost set, about 30 minutes. Don’t over bake.
  11. Let cool completely in the pan before lifting out the foil or parchment to remove the brownies.
  12. Cut into small squares.
