Out-of-this- World Brownies 
 For company and every time there is a local bake sale, I bake a batch of these 
fabulous brownies. Most everyone who tastes them says, "Yum! These are the best 
brownies I have ever eaten!" My cooking background came from my mother. Just 
watching her helped educate me in the "ways of the kitchen".
CATEGORY: Dessert 
TIME: Prep: 20 min. + cooling Bake: 40 min.
        * 1 cup butter, softened 
        * 2 cups sugar 
        * 4 eggs 
        * 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
        * 2 cups all-purpose flour 
        * 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons baking cocoa 
        * 1/8 teaspoon salt 
        * 1/2 cup butter 
        * 4 cups confectioners' sugar 
        * 1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons half-and-half cream 
        * 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
        * GLAZE: 
        * 1 square (1 ounce) unsweetened chocolate 
        * 1 tablespoon butter 
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add 
eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine 
flour, cocoa and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. 
    Spread into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° 
for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean 
(do not overbake). Cool on wire rack. 
    For frosting, in a heavy saucepan, cook and stir butter over medium heat 
for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Pour into a mixing bowl; beat in the 
confectioners' sugar, cream and vanilla. Frost cooled brownies. 
    For glaze, in a microwave melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. 
Drizzle over the frosting. Cut into bars. Yield: 3 dozen.
