Yesterday was the first time I baked brownies from scratch. I baked them with my best friend. We hung out at my house. We ate lunch, watched The Cat Returns, and baked brownies. It was pretty fun and I was glad that I hung out with her before she left for a trip that would last for the rest of the summer. She really enjoyed the brownies and so did the rest of my family.
We followed the recipe exactly with only one small change, and that was reducing the sugar to 1 1/4 cups. I didn't want to change the texture or do anything that would adversely affect the brownies. I thought the brownies turned out just right, with the right amount of chewiness and crunch. My mom thought they were a bit too sweet, so next time I think I will reduce the sugar to one cup and see what happens. Oh, I also just remembered that I left out the 1 cup of toasted nuts and I only used 9 pecans to decorate the top of the brownies. I would say that this recipe is a keeper!

P.S. I used extra large eggs b/c those are the only eggs I have. Also, the outer edges of the brownie were cakier than the middle. :)
