This recipe was in a magazine article containing celebrity recipes and is Katherine Hepburn's recipe for brownies. I have used it for years and may have adjust the ingredients to my own satisfaction.

Top Review by Juenessa

These are very good brownies. They have a rich chocolate flavor! I cooked them for 27 minutes and think they were a little over-cooked because the edges were dry. I will try them again, cooking between 22-24 minutes. Thanks so much for this dessert!
