Blue Ribbon Brownies from Southern Plate

Because of all the football games on this weekend, I decided to bake some treats. Oh who am I kidding, I had a huge chocolate craving. These were posted on Southern Plate. I love the crust that forms on the top of the brownies. I did not add the nuts. Worth the effort.

Blue Ribbon Brownies
1 cup shortening
4 squares unsweetened baker's chocolate
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
(1 cup nuts)

Melt shortening and chocolate together. Sift flour, salt and baking powder. Beat eggs and sugar until creamy. Add cooled chocolate mixture and blend. Add flour mixture, vanilla and nuts. Bake in greased 9x13x2 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick.
