Disgustingly Rich Brownies

2 c. sugar
1 1⁄4 cups all purpose flour
4 eggs
3⁄4 cup cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cubes (1 cup) butter
1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1⁄4 tsp. salt
Shortening to grease pan
Preheat your oven to 350, then smear the inside of an 8 or 9 inch pan with shortening. Melt the butter over low heat. Watch it. It’s easy to burn. In your mixing bowl, stir the cocoa and sugar together. Then add the melted butter. Mix! Add eggs and vanilla. Mix! Now add the flour and salt, and mix just until smooth. Not too much. (If your adding walnuts, now’s the time.) Scrape the mixture out into the grease pan and spread out in an even layer. Bake in a 350 degree oven until the brownies just begin to pull away from the sides of the pan (or until you can stick a toothpick in and pull it out with no batter sticking to it.) Takes about 40 to 50 minute. The hardest part! Let cool for a while before cutting. Serves 12-16
