The Joy of Baking/Barney's Brownies
This recipe is from Aunt Bee`s Mayberry Cookbook by Ken Beck and Jim Clark. The name of the brownies in the cookbook is "Bullet Brownies," which comes from the fact that Barney carried only one bullet in his pocket. I've chosen to rename them after the deputy himself. The note to the recipe says,"Be sure to eat them one at a time."
These are very simple to make. You can whip them up in no time. I made them this evening while listening to jazz on Public Radio. They are very tasty.
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
4 beaten eggs (I use 3)
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Grease a 7 x 11 pan with cooking spray.
In a saucepan, melt the butter.
Add the sugar and cocoa, and blend well.
Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients, stirring well.
Pour into the prepared pan.
Bake in a 300-325 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
