I got this recipe from my Aunt. It was in a cookbook called Great American Recipes. These tender brownies are quick to prepare, using ingredients that are handy in the kitchen. This recipe makes a large pan great for a potluck!

This is probably my favorite recipe EVER!! Diabetic whose boys are grown and don't live close to me, so I haven't baked in years. When my oldest son was 16 or 17, he ate an entire panful overnight that was intended for a work food day the following day! And honestly, I could do it also! Once won a prize for me in a bake-off!
