My family has been making these brownies for 25 years. I remember making at least three or four pans at Christmas time with Mama. They went into the tins filled with goodies we gave as gifts.
They are quick, kid friendly and the ingredients are usually on hand. Just make sure you do not overbake them like I did today. They were still great tasting but they didn’t have the chewy fudginess I like.
