Scott and I were going to the neighbor’s house to watch the Bears-Packers game last weekend and I wanted to make a dessert. I feel bad going to someone’s house without dessert – don’t ask me why, I really don’t know. So, I whipped up these Amaretto Chocolate brownies from Tyler Florence. While I didn’t really notice a strong amaretto flavor, I certainly liked how fudgy these brownies were. Yummy, yummy, yummy.
I didn’t put nuts in these because I wasn’t sure everyone else would like nuts, and well, I’m pretty sure I didn’t have any. 🙂 But, I bet they would be very tasty with them! Check out what everyone else made for Tyler Florence Fridays!
from Tyler Florence
2 sticks unsalted butter, plus more for pan
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
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.
