Buttermilk Pecan Brownies With Sour Cream Frosting

Recipe by greyghost

I got his recipe from Better Homes and Garden - it is very yummy! I cut them when they were still warm - so they didn't cut clean - but they still were loved and devoured!

This was a really different delicious brownie! I liked that it was light but with alot of flavor with two layers, and personaly I liked it even better when the frosting hardened the next day from being in the refrigerator! Great brownie!!
