Big Fat Dark and Chewy Brownies for a Crowd

2. C. unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 C. white sugar
1 1/2 C. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
6 eggs
1 1/2 C. cocoa
2 C. unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C. chopped pecans or walnuts (optional) Non stick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch pan lightly with cooking
spray. Line bottom with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl with electric mixer, blend melted butter with white and
brown sugar, then add vanilla and eggs. Blend well on slow speed. In a
separate bowl, stir together cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt. Fold into
batter and blend well, scraping bottom of mixing bowl to ensure ingredients
are evenly combined. Fold in nuts if using.

Pour or spoon into prepared pan. Place pan on a cookie sheet (this protects
bottoms from over baking while top bakes.) Bake until done
(35-40 minutes).
Brownies will be set and slightly firm, but not dry.

Cool then freeze 1 hour before cutting. Un-mold before cutting. Peel off
parchment paper. Cut into large blocks (about 2 1/2x3 inches).
Wrap each
in wax paper and keep refrigerated or frozen. to serve for a party, pile
brownies on platter and dust with confectioners sugar.
