From Taste of Home. I typed the recipe as it was in the magazine, but my brownies took at least 40 minutes to bake.

I have made these many times from my Taste of Home recipe collection. They yield a very tender, moist, and sweet brownie. A great potluck recipe as it makes a large panful and is very popular. I was about to post it, but found you had beat me to it. Thanks! : )
