Last night we met for our second plunge into Luke’s Gospel. Sinners and Saints is off to a great start. We’ve already covered social revolution, a pregnant virgin, a post-menopausal woman’s miraculous conception (with her husband), angelic visitations, being oppressed vs. being the oppressor…it’s getting real, folks. Another group activity we do well: eating. We’ve been munching our way through brownies, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, triple gingersnaps, and did I mention brownies? In the interest of group bonding, we’re willing to take one (or more) for the team and make sure the warm baked goods don’t go to waste. If we could share warm brownies with the world, I’m inclined to believe peace would be within our reach. As requested by the group, here’s the recipe for last night’s batch. And for those of you who missed out: we’ll be back with a fresh batch on February 2nd. Enjoy!
Butterscotch Brownies, via Alan’s mom, ‘the Rev’
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups dark brown sugar
- 2/3 cup butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 6 oz. chocolate chips
1. Mix eggs, melted butter, vanilla and sugar.
2. Add remaining dry ingredients, chocolate chips last.
3. Pour (okay, spoon really, it’ll be thick) into greased 9 x 13 pan.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Closer to 25 if you like them on the chewier and slightly underdone side.
Alan thought his manly good looks won me over. Really, it was his ability to bake a mean pan of brownies. I had to marry into the Klug family to get this recipe. Just don’t tell ‘the Rev’ I shared it with you…
