Glamorous Brownies

A few years ago I had a subscription to Glamour Magazine. In the back they used to have a little entertaining section with a recipe or cocktail ideas. I found it a bit odd that they included a brownie recipe but I suppose that most of the readers get that chocolate craving just like I do! I was really pleased with these. They are very fudgey and have a cinnamon undertone which I find interesting.

I had been home sick for a few days and hadn't been outside and was so bored. I decided that the brownies deserved a photo shoot in the snow. :) It was super fun.

The Ultimate Brownie

14 T butter
8 1oz. squares bittersweet chocolate
4 eggs
1/2 t salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 t cinnamon
2 T vanilla (I saw this and my jaw dropped. I was NOT using 2 T of my Madagascar vanilla for brownies!!)
1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 13x9 pan. Melt butter, EVOO and chocolate in double boiler. In a separate bowl beat eggs. Whisk in salt, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir in chocolate-oil mixture. Fold in flour. Pour batter into pan and bake for 50 minutes.

They look good, but that does seem like A LOT of vanilla. I wonder if it was a typo?

Oh my gosh... those brownies were wonderful, I felt like I had to go to the gyms in Boston after eating just a half of a bite.
