Best Ever Brownies

Abigail named these brownies. I must admit that I had never made brownies from scratch before. It isn't like they are hard or anything, but I guess I've just always grabbed a box.

1 cup butter (can you see how these achieve "best ever" status?)
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13.

Melt butter in a large bowl. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, beating until blended. Pour into pan and bake 30-35 minutes.

For fun, cut out paper shapes and place on top of brownies, then dust with powdered sugar.

I'll have to have some of those! Especially after reading Abigail's little diddy about then. They sound irresistible! And so cute, too.
