    List of Ingredients

    Pecan Brownies

    2 1/2 ounces semisweet chocolate
    1 cup all purpose flour
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1 cup unsalted butter
    Extra butter for greasing pan
    1/2 cup packed raw sugar
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    1 egg
    1/2 cup pecans
    1 teaspoon milk
    Confectionersí sugar for dusting


    Preheat oven to 350 degs. Grease a large 4x8 pan and line with parchment paper. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. (a double boiler is ideal) and heat until melted.

    While chocolate is melting, stir together flour, baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl.

    In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar together, then mix in extract and egg. Remove chocolate from heat and stir into the butter mix. Chop the pecans finely, then add them to the bowl along with the flour mixture and milk, and stir until well combined. Spoon the dough into the lined dish and level. Bake for 30 minutes or until firm to touch - brownie will still be a bit gooey in the middle. Allow to cool completely. Remove from dish and cut into 20 pieces. Dust with sugar if desired.
