Admitted – I wasn’t sure I had the energy to partake in this week’s Tuesdays With Dorie. I just got back from NYC, which is always a whirlwind, and I’m more exhausted than I ever thought possible. However, I rose to the occasion because:
1. I LOVE Katharine Hepburn. Ever seen Philadelphia Story? You know, C.K. Dexter Haven (aka Cary Grant – swoon!)? My, she was yar? No? Add to your Netflix queue pronto. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies. EVER.
2. I’ve had my eye on this recipe for oh, I don’t know, 5 years now and it’s about time I got off my butt and made it. The recipe, with a few added Dorie Greenspan tweaks (cinnamon, espresso powder – both of which I added – and nuts – which I left out), is supposedly a Katharine Hepburn family recipe.
So there you have it.
These brownies have everything that makes brownies fab – dark chocolate, a bit of espresso powder to intensify flavor and a dash of cinnamon for kick. They are chewy and dark and wonderful. And so easy to make. I could eat the whole plateful right now. In fact, I just might…. **running off to pop Philadelphia Story in the dvd player**
Thanks to Lisa at Surviving Oz for the great pick (recipe after the jump)!

Edit: Ok, apparently there is a Katherine vs Katharine controversy. My bad! I had no idea. Post has been updated to switch Katherine to Katharine. Apologies to Ms. Hepburn.
