Stir in flour & nuts. Pour into greased and floured 9x9 pans. Bake at 325 for about 45 minutes, or until brownies pull away from sides of pan.

 

Glaze

 (I'm not a big glaze or icing fan on brownies...but this one is yummy!)

 2 squares chocolate, melted and cooled

1 Tbsp. butter

1 1/2 cups icing sugar

dash salt

1/4 cup hot milk

 

Combine all ingredients and mix until smooth. Immediately spread over brownies.

 

Cook's notes:  Here's my recipe for the BEST Brownies EVER!!! I'm not sure of the exact serving size, but it's a pretty big recipe...makes 2 full square cake pans.
