Amaretto Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts

Cook Time: --
Level: --
Yield: 12 brownies


* 2 sticks unsalted butter, plus more for pan
* 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
* 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* Pinch salt
* 4 large eggs
* 2 cups sugar
* 2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
* 1 1/2 cups walnuts
* Powdered sugar, for garnish


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a 9 by 9 square baking pan with parchment paper, making sure
paper hangs over the edges. Grease paper with butter so the brownies
don't stick. Melt butter and chocolate over a double-boiler and stir
gently until smooth and shiny. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl and
set aside. Whisk together eggs, sugar and amaretto in a mixing bowl
until combined. Pour in chocolate mixture and continue to whisk until
combined. Gradually add flour mixture, then add walnuts and
incorporate with a wooden spoon. Transfer batter to baking pan and
bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean when
inserted into the middle of the pan. When done, invert onto a cutting
board, remove paper and cut into squares. Garnish with powdered sugar
and serve.
