Nick Malgieri's Supernatural Brownies - is there really a better recipe? I think not.

All of the brownie mix discussion brought this to mind. An inquiry primarily to those who have made the Malgieri brownies, which truly do live up to their name. Recipe summary as I make it, my slight alterations in (): 8 oz butter, melted over low heat, add in 8 oz good bittersweet chocolate, chopped; allow to melt, add 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup dark brown sugar, 2 tsp vanilla (plus a tiny dribble of almond extract), 4 eggs one by one, 1 cup flour, (1/2 tsp baking powder), 1 tsp salt, (1/2 to) 1 cup chopped nuts (usually walnuts, sometimes pecans). 13x9 in pan, 350 deg F oven appx 30 mins (recipe calls for longer, I bake just until solid in center). Let cool, cover with aluminum foil, and let stand overnight before cutting/serving (this last is an essential step, do not!!! mess with these before they have rested). If you have made these, have you ever found a better recipe, and if so, what is it? If you haven't made these I urge you to give them a go. I have tried several other recipes since and always come back to these.
