Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 12
Categories: Brownies / Chocolate / Desserts

1  cup  Shortening
2/3  cup  Baking cocoa
2  cups  Sugar
4    Eggs
2  tablespoons  Amaretto/almond flavor
1 1/2  cups  Flour
1/2  teaspoon  Salt
    Handful sliced almonds (opt)
1/4  cup  Butter
2  tablespoons  Half-and-half
3  tablespoons  Baking cocoa
1  dash  Salt
2 1/2  cups  Confectioner's sugar
2  tablespoons  Amaretto

Melt shortening with cocoa (I use the microwave), cool. Beat eggs, gradually adding sugar. Add shortening mixture, Amaretto, salt, and flour. Beat until well mixed. Pour batter into a lightly greased 13x9x2" baking pan. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes; cool. Frost with Amaretto Frosting, sprinkle with sliced almonds (or arrange in flowery patterns to be fancy). Cut into squares. ************************** Amaretto Frosting ***************************** Melt butter and cocoa together (the microwave works well for this), cool. Stir in half-and-half. Add confectioner's sugar, salt, and amaretto, stirring until smooth. From the Oct '86 edition of Southern Living. Posted in COOKING 5/10/90 by Debra Heng.
