Tuesdays with Dorie (a day late) -- Katharine Hepburn Brownies



This week we made Katharine Hepburn Brownies. Apparently, Katharine Hepburn was famous for her brownies. She liked a dense brownie with very little flour. This recipe is a tribute to her style of brownie, not the exact recipe that Katharine used.

These brownies do indeed have very little flour. They are dense and fudge-like, which is what I prefer over cake-like brownies. This is an easy recipe to make and the brownies are quite good. I love the addition of cinnamon and lots of nuts.

You can find the recipe for these brownies at the adorable blog Surviving Oz. http://www.survivingoz.com/2009/07/lisa-vs-tribute-to-katherine-hepburn.html

  3. Wow, the nuts in your brownies really stand out! What kind of nuts did you use and did you use more than 1 cup? It looks super! I like my brownies fudgey too.

  4. Thank you for commenting!

    I used slivered almonds and I just used up what was left in the bag; I think I went a bit overboard with the nuts, but Dave and I both love almonds.

  5. Your brownies look delicious! I'm glad you were such a big fan! I tend to prefer cake-like brownies so these were a bit too fudgy for me.

  11. What stunning photos - both of the brownies and Katharine! Your brownies look so good with the whipped cream! And I'm not a fan of nuts in brownies, but the almond addition has me intrigued. I think I'd like that!

  14. Thank you Teanna!
    Katharine Hepburn was so beautiful all throughout her life, wasn't she?

    I usually take photos in the middle of the night because that's when I cook, but I made these brownies during the day and the photos turned out better than usual.
