Orange Brownies

The orange flavor in these fragrant brownies comes from an orange liqueur, like Cointreau or Grand Marnier. You can serve them plain, or ice them with an orange liqueur-flavored icing. Either way, they’re absolutely delicious. SAM

1 cup shortening
4 ounces unsweetened baker’s chocolate
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons orange liqueur
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Chocolate-Orange Icing

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan and set aside. In a double boiler over simmering water, melt together the shortening and chocolate. Add the sugar, stirring until dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool. Stir a couple of tablespoons of the chocolate mixture into the eggs to temper them. Then add the remaining chocolate mixture and orange liqueur, then the flour and salt, stirring until blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. Cool completely in the pan before icing and/or cutting into 2-inch squares.
Makes 2 dozen brownies.

    You should talk with Michael, the ROL photographer. He’s a television director and he concentrates on taking photos of ingredients. Screens and scrims and lighting—it’s amazing what he can do. Go to ‘Who We Are’ and ask him.

    sounds interesting, but I wonder how the orange tastes with chocolate..I was never a fan of orange cadburys:( but your recipe sounds nice!

    If you don’t like orange Cadburys, trade out the orange for something you do like–almond, raspberry, gooseberry. The basic ingredients will work with any flavor you like.
