I don't have to eat gluten-free for health reasons, but sometimes the recipes look so good and when I don't have to go buy something special at the store - I will give them a try. Here is one such recipe. Good - chewy -and nutty too (kind of like me!).
Finally, today we have a break from the extreme humidity and heat that has been plaguing this state for the month of July - so the air is off and the windows are open - YES - fresh air!
Fudgy Pecan Brownies
6 tbsp. butter, cut into pieces
1/2 c. cornstarch
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 12 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped and toasted pecans (or you can use walnuts, or hazelnuts!)
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray your 8 or 9" square baking pan. In a microwave-safe bowl microwave the butter and chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Stir in the sugar and vanilla. Stir in the eggs, one-at-a-time, until combined. Add the cornstarch, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir well. Stir in the pecans. Pour into the baking pan. Bake about 35 minutes.
