While growing up I would go with my dad to a large Army Surplus store, on one of the visits they had a bin full of discarded books. I found this "1956" Betty Crocker's cookbook, the hours I spent going over every recipe. The first meal I prepared for my husband while we were dating came from this cookbook. Needless to say it has lots of sentiment and I plan to keep it always! The brownie recipe I have made often and hope to make someday with my grandchildren.
2 sq unsweetened chocolate (2 oz)
1/3 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup broken nuts
Melt chocolate and shortening in a medium size bowl.(I use the microwave) Beat in sugar and eggs. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into chocolate mixture, mix well and stir in nuts.
Spread in well greased 8" square pan. Bake until top has dull crust. A slight imprint will be left when top is touched lightly with finger. Cool and cut into squares
