Personal Notes:
This recipe was in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookies and Candies Cookbook that my Aunt Mary Gisolo Oppenheimer gave me as a shower gift. I love this cookbook and have made these brownies ever since I have been married. Sometimes I take a shortcut now and use a box mix (!) but if I do that, I add chocolate chips for extra richness.
