Cooking spray
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup butter or stick margarine, melted
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1/4 cup coarsely chopped candied cherries
3 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 3/4 teaspoons hot water


Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare the brownies, coat the bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray (do not coat the sides of the pan).

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Combine granulated sugar and next 6 ingredients (granulated sugar through egg white); stir well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moist. Stir in cherries and walnuts. Spread batter in bottom of prepared pan.

Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the brownies comes out almost clean. Cool on a wire rack.

To prepare the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, almond extract, and 1 3/4 teaspoons water in a small bowl. Drizzle the glaze over the brownies, and let stand for 15 minutes.
