TWD: Lenox Almond Biscotti - I mean brownies :(

Um, I'm an idiot and forgot this week. Totally forgot! I was planning on spending Sunday afternoon making these but then got invited to my father-in-law's for dinner and completely forgot about the biscotti until....oh, about 9pm last night! Oops. For what the other bakers did, please click here.
Otherwise, enjoy this photo of the amazing Lady's Brownies I made. Recipe from Paula Deen's Lady & Sons cookbook. It is so simple, no mixers and just one bowl! I added about a cup of toffee chips just for fun!
2cup sugar
1 cup veg. oil.
4 eggs
6 tbs cocoa
1tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup self rising flour
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans ( I omitted, nuts take up valuable chocolate space in our mouths) ;)

Preheat oven to 325, blend together sugar, oil, eggs, cocoa, and vanilla. Add flour; mix. add nuts (or in my case, toffee chips); spread into greased 13x9 baking dish, bake 25-30. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Chuck said they were the best brownies he has ever had! I must say, I baked them for the full 30 minutes and they were incredibly soft and gooey: a perfect brownie texture, if you're of the people who prefer gooey over cakey brownies, which we are.

well the brownies look delicious! I plan to make those Katharine Hepburn ones this week to try. The biscotti were good - try those when you get time.

Those look delicous. You do need to try the biscotti though. They are wonderful.

Yeah, the biscotti was good, but I'll take gooey, chocolatey brownies over hard biscotti any day!

Oooo can I have some?? I was late this week myself, didn't think I would even get to make the biscotti. My oven was on the fritz but got it fixed and baked them this morning :) Your brownies look yummy!
