White Chocolate Brownies
*makes 20 bars*
1/4 cup unsalted butter
6 oz white chocolate baking squares, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
1) Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8x8x2-inch baking pan; set aside. In a small saucepan heat and stir butter and half of the white chocolate over low heat until smooth. Remove from heat.
2) In a medium mixing bowl beat eggs with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until foamy. Gradually add sugar; beat about 3 minutes or until thickened. Add melted white chocolate mixture, the flour, salt, and vanilla; beat just until combined. Stir in the remaining chopped white chocolate and the semisweet chocolate pieces. Spread batter evenly in the prepared pan.
