The flavor of the brownies were very good but i followed the baking time of 45 minutes and they were overcooked. lucky i baked two other desserts to bring to work.

oh, man, these sound fantastic. My grandmother's favorites - cherry, chocolate, and amaretto. Definitely making these during the holidays. Thanks for sharing!

Is it really 1-1/2 tablespoons of vanilla, or did you mean teaspoons? (more normal for a brownie recipe.) In a 9 x 13 inch pan, the brownies baked in 25 minutes, 45 minutes would have been too long. Everyone who ate them liked them very much. They tasted especially good served frozen on a 90 degree day.

I really did tablespoons! I like a lot of vanilla / cherry / almond going on - but the basic brownie is super flexible so go with what you like - I am glad you like them! My bake time is for the edge pan which has deep channels so I guess that's why it is longer ... freezing is an great idea!!!

Holy Guacamole, were these good - I liked them, they were easy to make, and I got universally good reviews from guests. I did swap brandy for the amaretto, because that's what we had, and I did add the extra 1/4 cup of flour because I thought it would make them easier to cut and serve, but I will happily try the gooier Amaretto-laced version at the earliest opportunity.

Chocolate and amaretto!!! Yikes! sounds like a perfect recipe for a great brownie. Oh Dear!! my doctor told me to either stop eating or drinking too much wine! (when is too much chocolate or wine?}

Well, you have to eat to soak up the wine so he is nuts. I say just go for a nice long walk, then eat, and wine :-)

Can't wait to try them out -- maybe this weekend (since I was too late in the game to jump in and test recipes...I'll have lots of free time!!)

Mmmm..mmm..mmm...looks very interesting and tasty -- looking forward to trying them next time I am in the brownie/chocolate mood -- love the addition of amaretto...

Hey CFWG - I did my usual try one and then send them to work with Mr L (self preservation) and one of his coworkers said they were the best brownies she'd ever had! I think the booze helps - let me know what you think when you try them!!!
