Grandma B.'s Brownies

I asked Mary Lynn to make this classic family recipe as one of our open house desserts.  Chris' Grandma B. was a fabulous baker.  Her desserts were delectable and the sweet tooth was definitely passed onto Chris.  I used to think that boxed brownie mix was good...until there was this.  It was love at first bite.  Sometimes Mary Lynn will even substitute some peanut butter chips or add peanut butter for that nutty taste that Chris goes gaga for :P. 

Sorry, no pictures at the moment but next time they're made I'll be sure to snap a photo to add to this entry!
