Gooey Caramel Brownies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Ppaperdoll

I think this came from a Pillsbury cookbook. I clipped it because it's made in a 9x9 inch pan, and that's the size I have. I use margarine for the shortening.

This sounded really good, but I'm sorry--it was very dry. The batter was very thick prior to cooking too. Maybe needs less flour?
