Mrs. Field's Brownies

Have you ever tasted heaven? I'm not really a brownie fan but after trying these brownies I may be converted. They turn out very fudgey and moist, not crumbley like other brownies.

Be warned: Overcooking will result in chocolate rocks.

6 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup salted butter, softened
3 large eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2. Combine unsweetened baking chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan. Melt over medium-low heat and stir until smooth.
3. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat eggs until light yellow in color, about 5 minutes. Add sugar and blend on low until thoroughly combined. Add vanilla and melted chocolate to the egg and sugar mixture. Blend on low speed until smooth. Add the flour and mix thoroughly by hand.
4. Pour batter into greased pan. Smooth surface with a spatula and sprinkle uniformly with walnuts. Bake on the center rack of oven for 30 to 35 minutes. The batter should be set and a toothpick inserted in center should come out with sticky brownie batter . Do not over bake. Cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cut and serve chilled.
