Raspberry Brownies

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 (1-oz) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
3/4 cup flour
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/3 cup raspberry jam

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until soft and creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs and chocolate, mixing well. Add flour to butter mixture, mixing well; stir in walnuts.



Spoon half of batter into a greased and floured 9-inch square pan. Spread raspberry jam over batter; top with remaining batter.

Bake mixture at 350 for about 28-30 minutes.


What I did differently from the recipe:
Left out the walnuts.

What I'll do differently next time:
Leave out the walnuts.

Verdict:
Thumbs up! Super easy and really good! The only problem I had was when they were done I was scared they weren't really done because you know, the raspberry jam looks like the brownies are runny. But after taste-testing them, I was reassured they were done.
