September 4 is...

National Macadamia Nut Day.

Dark Chocolate Macadamia Brownies


    8 ounces dark chocolate, broken into pieces
    2/3 cup butter
    4 eggs, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups superfine sugar
(or granulated sugar, processed to fine texture in a food processor)
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup macadamia nuts, cut into quarters


    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a 9x11-inch
 baking pan with parchment paper.
    In a saucepan over low heat, melt together the
 dark chocolate and butter.
Beat the mixture with an electric mixer on low speed until well blended,
and beat in eggs, sour cream, vanilla extract, sugar,
and flour until thoroughly combined.
Stir in the macadamia nuts, and pour the batter
 into the prepared baking pan.
    Bake in the preheated oven until the top forms
a cracked crust, 30 to 35 minutes.
Let cool in the pan about 10 minutes before moving to
a wire rack to finish cooling.
