Now here's a recipe that dates back to my Mom's oldest recipes. you might remember your Mom or Grandmother making old fashioned walnut brownies. Try them with pecans or macadamia nuts!  YUM!

Walnut Brownies

4 eggs

1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment paper leaving extra paper on each end to use as a handle for removing brownies later. Then lightly grease the parchment paper.

In a large saucepan, combine cocoa, shortening and butter. Heat over low heat until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Beat in eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt until thoroughly blended. Stir in flour, blending well. Fold in chopped walnuts and spread batter evenly into bottom of the lined and greased baking pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Do not over bake. Remove from oven and cool on rack.
