Tuesdays with Dorie: Katherine Hepburn Brownies

Oh brownies, how I love thee. This week's selection comes from Lisa of Surviving Oz, she's not a TWD baker but she did design our new TWD logo so she got to pick a selection. I'm so glad she did because these brownies are phenomenal. The story as Dorie tells it is that Ms. Hepburn once said you shouldn't put too much flour in your brownies, thus this recipe was inspired by her. They are so good, fudgy with melty chocolate and a hint of cinnamon. Mine look super dark because I picked up some Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa recently and it made my brownies almost black but the taste doesn't seem very different. I've used it for World Peace Cookies too and they still taste great. I used pecans too and they were a nice crunchy contrast to the melty bits of bittersweet chocolate. Also the recipe called for instant coffee but I used instant espresso instead. Yum! The brownies did not last long at all because they were so good. Thanks again Lisa!

I didn't even realize Hershey's made a Special Dark cocoa - I love dark chocolate!
Your brownies look super fudgey. I love that they're really dark too! These were so easy to bake, I plan on baking more!
