Friendship Brownies

This recipe is designed to be a brownie in a jar gift mix.  You just layer the dry ingredients in a quart jar and attach the "To Prepare Brownies" directions.  And they are all ready to give to a friend.  But you can be like us and forgo the jar.  Just mix them up, bake them and enjoy them right now.
Friendship Brownies Recipe
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

3 eggs
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Pour the flour into a 1-qt. glass canning jar.  On top of the flour, layer the brown sugar, salt, sugar, baking powder, cocoa, chocolate chips and nuts (do not mix--you are layering them).  Cover with a tight fitting lid and store in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.

in a bowl, beat the eggs, oil and vanilla.  Add the brownie mix; stir well.  Spread into a greased 9-inch square baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 34-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool.  Yield:  16 brownies.
