Lowney’s Brownies

BrowniesLowney’s Cook Book, 1907

1⁄2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 squares chocolate
2 eggs
1⁄2 cup nut meats
1⁄2 cup flour
1⁄4 teaspoon salt

Cream butter, add remaining ingredients, spread on buttered sheets, and bake ten to fifteen minutes. Cut squares as soon as taken from oven.

Notes for modern cook: Our batch took 30 minutes at 325o. The end product is cake-like and slightly less chocolatey.
