|These are supposed to be Irish, but the only thing |
slightly Irish are the green looking raisins.
1 c walnuts, toasted at 325F for 10 minutes
1 1/2 c raisins
1 1/4 c whiskey, Irish if you have
12 oz bittersweet chocolate
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 c sugar
4 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/4 c flour
In a small saucepan, simmer 1 cup of whiskey with raisins until they start to get syrupy. Microwave chocolate and butter on half power until melted. Cool these two concoctions, slightly.
In a mixer bowl, using a whisk attachment, beat sugar, salt, and eggs until thick like a mousse. Slowly whisk flour in, making three additions. Stir in chocolate, raisins, nuts, and remaining 1/4 c whiskey. Pour onto a greased and floured jelly roll pan. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes.
