Here's the recipe from Just Empanadas:

Brilynn’s Basil Brownies (or B3)
Adapted from Alice Medrich's ‘Cookies and Brownies’
Serves 16… if you like small serving sizes

• 6 T butter, (salted was all I had so I didn’t add any additional salt to the recipe)
• 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
• 1 1/4 cups sugar
• 1 t vanilla extract
• 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
• 1/2 cup all purpose flour
• 4 tsp dried basil

Just in case this is copywrited, mix them up as you would any brownies and bake in a lined 8" square pan in a 400 degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until they begin to appear dry on top.

In the meantime, make an ice water bath about 1" deep in a pan large enough to fit the brownie pan.

Once you take the brownies from the oven, put them in the ice water bath and leave them there until they cool completely (alas! no warm brownies!). If necessary, refresh the water bath with more ice.

If anything is unclear, consult the direct link below.

And here more info about the herb cookery challenge she baked them for and her process in developing the recipe: http://jumboempanadas.blogspot.com/2006/10/theyre-just-brownies-or-are-they.html The water bath after baking technique is interesting, no? I've read about it before from Nicole Weston of BakingSheet and, of course, if Alice Medrich, the US doyenne of chocolat, says so it's gotta be worth giving a whirl. ...another reason to kvell for that kitchen.
