Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Still the best brownie recipe, the cherry cheese version is my all time favourite. I've been making this since junior high when I first discovered it in my grade 8 Home Economics cookbook, The New Purity Cook Book. Over the years I've used other recipes from that book as well.
