Tahini Brownies (Adapted from Milk Street*)
4oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3T cocoa powder
3/4 c Tahini
1/2 c flour
Line an 8-inch square pan with foil. In a saucepan melt butter. Remove from heat and add chocolate and cocoa and stir until melted. Set aside. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Whisk in Tahini. Gently fold in flour. Measure out 1/2 c of the mixture and set aside. Add chocolate mixture to remaining Tahini mixture. Pour into pan. Dollop the reserved Tahini mixture on top of chocolate mixture. Swirl the tip of a knife to marble the top. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until set but center is still moist. Cool in pan for 30 minutes on rack. Use the foil to lift the brownies out of the pan and completely cool before removing foil and slicing.
*I know there's a big legal battle between ATK (Cooks Illustrated) and Christopher Kimball. I'm not really sure who is right and who is wrong, but I do have to say I do miss him on ATK. As much as it pains me to admit, Julia and Bridget are just a missing something. I know he always made bad jokes that made me roll my eyes, but he did add something to the show. I was happy to see that he started a new venture. I received my complimentary issue of his magazine and I sent in for a subscription.
