White Chocolate Brownies

If we had a “signature dish”, I believe it would be these brownies. When we first opened the Inn in 1999 and created a dessert buffet that would be available each night, it was a stretch to find new recipes that would have “staying” power on an all night buffet. These absolutely fit the bill! The recipe originally was found in a lovely cookbook published by the Strong Memorial Hospital Auxiliary (Rochester New York)
INGREDIENTS — 1/2 cup unsalted butter
8 oz white chocolate chips
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (we use Callebaut)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an eight inch pan.
Melt butter in a microwave safe measuring cup and remove from the microwave. Add four ounces of the white chocolate. Do not stir.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs for at least two minutes (I often just put them into a food processor–turn it on and walk away until I like the way they look). Add a pinch of salt and then gradually add the sugar. Beat until the mixture is a pale yellow.
Add the white chocolate mixture, vanilla, salt and flour mixing until it is just combined. Stir in the semi sweet chocolate chips and the remaining white chocolate.
Bake for thirty minutes—DO NOT OVERBAKE BUT DO NOT UNDERBAKE EITHER! Check for doneness and just wait until you taste a warm, gooey bite of delight!
