My all-time favorite team charity projects were the cookbooks I published with my fellow spouses. This super easy recipe is a family favorite and comes from one of the cookbooks we produced while Jamie was playing with the Seattle Mariners. The cookbok was titled “Starters & Closers” and contained the favorite appetizers and desserts of the families on the team. Proceeds from the sales of this cookbook, and many of the others, benefited pediatric cancer research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

Total time: 105 minutes
Yield: 36 (1-1/2 inch) square brownies
6 ounces good quality bittersweet chocolate, plus 6 ounces
3 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3-1/2 Tablespoons water
3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups walnut, coarsely chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a medium saucepan, combine 6 ounces chocolate with butter, sugar, and water. Cook over low heat, stirring, until melted. Set aside to cool a bit. Break up the remaining chocolate and stir into melted chocolate mixture. Whisk in eggs, flour, and salt. Add walnuts if desired. Batter will be thick and lumpy. Spray a 9-inch square pan with non-stick spray and scrape batter into pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Set on rack to cool. Garnish with powdered sugar.
