These tasted really good! I left out the nuts. The temperature and time didn't work out for me. I ended up having to bake for about 40-45 min to have them be fully cooked. Most brownie recipes I've made have used a higher heat, so I may try that next time since this left the edges a bit burnt in order for the middle to cook enough.
