These brownies are delicious! I chose them because they looked similar to my grandmother's recipe for Blonde Brownies, but they actually turned out more dense and chewy. It was a very nice change! I only ended up with a dozen bars, because I cut them a little larger. I have a feeling they'll be gone very quickly!
I have been making these for years and they are absolutely delicious, especially with a glass of milk!
I love the edges! These are good but they're a bit sweet for me.
