Default Brownie Mix

You can make these up to keep in the pantry for "emergencies," or give as gifts. Be sure to include the instructions!

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup vegetable shortening

DIRECTIONS:

Combine dry ingredients. Cut in shortening thoroughly with a pastry blender. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

Makes 8 cups, or enough for 4 one-pint jars yielding 4 batches of brownies.

HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS TO MIX IT UP OR TO INCLUDLE WITH YOUR GIFT:


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan.

In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups brownie mix with 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup chopped nuts. Stir until just moistened. Spread in prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until center is set.
Makes 16 brownies.
