Cook Time: 50 Minutes
• 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
• 3 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), chopped (from your Adventure Package)
• 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup whole blanched almonds, toasted until golden and cooled
• 2 large eggs
• 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F. and butter and flour a 9-inch square baking pan, knocking out excess flour.
In a heavy 1 1/2-quart saucepan melt butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring, until smooth and remove pan from heat. Cool chocolate mixture 10 minutes.
In a food processor process sugar and almonds until ground fine. Stir almond mixture into chocolate mixture and add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well with a wooden spoon until mixture is glossy and smooth. Stir in flour, salt, and cinnamon until just combined.
Spread batter evenly in pan and bake in middle of oven 25 to 30 minutes, or until a tester comes out with crumbs adhering to it. Cool brownies completely in pan on a rack before cutting into 16 squares. Brownies keep, layered between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container at cool room temperature, 5 days.
