This recipe is for a 9x9 pan. A batch-and-a-half works very well for a 9x13 pan. The brownies turned out very good and chocolatey, and the buttery shortbread crust puts it over the top. The shortbread is a bit crumbly and doesn't want to stay together, but it was my 1st time cutting in butter and I also baked the crust a bit longer than the recipe says. Something I might improve on with better technique.
