  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup of all-purpose flour and sugar. Cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9x9 inch baking pan.
  2. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm and slightly golden. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together 1/4 cup flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder. Make a well in the center, and add the egg, vanilla, and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until well blended. Stir in the chopped chocolate and walnuts. Spread the mixture over the cooled crust.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies begin to pull away from the edges, and the top appears dry. Cool, and cut into squares. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

AMAZING!! Anyone who gave this recipe a bad review must be doing something wrong. The only things I did different was I used an 8by8 dish and increased the cooking time by 10 minutes on both th...

Gooey is an understatement. I would call this melted chocolate with shortbread crust. I followed the recipe and baking times exactly, but the top never really set. I let it sit at room temper...

INSANELY good recipe! You can make A LOT easier too, if you simply buy a brownie mix instead of making these brownies. They turned out better when I used Peanut Butter Cup brownie mix and added ...

Now THIS is a brownie recipe! The shortbread crust gives these brownies a fabulous touch. They are very rich, but delicious. I cut my brownies in small squares because it doesn't take much to...

Really good warm with some milk. I didn't let the crust cool before I poured the brownie batter over the top and it came out great. I added 1/2 t of salt which helped wake up the chocolate fla...
