Exceptional Passover Brownies

This recipe is from Claire Sauerhoff, pastry chef and owner of a New York bakery called "The Exceptional Brownie". Her bakery won COPIA'S "Best Darn Brownie Contest". To achieve a fudgy result, be careful that you don't overbake the brownies. After 35 minutes, begin to test for doneness with a cake tester or a toothpick that you stick in the middle of the pan. You're looking for the tester to come out with just a little batter on the end.
