I tried this recipe for the first time tonight and made it according to the directions that were given clearly but not including everything that was on the ingredient list. I could not see where the extra 2 tablespoons of butter and the 2 tablespoons of cocoa that were mentioned on the list but not included in the directions on the page. The final result came out just fine so I am happy with the results and gave it an excellent rating that puts it right up there with all other brownie recipes that I have tried.

These are very good brownies. The cinnamon is a nice touch. I didn't have any nuts, so used an equal amount of flaked coconut and it worked well. The only problem I had was spreading teh top layer. I would definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing!

I'm not usually one for cake-style brownies, but these are delicious! The cinnamon was a wonderful addition. I used pecans and they had a nice streusel-like taste in the middle. Thanks Parsley!
