I used to be famous for these and was expected to bring them everywhere I went. They are a lovely, chewy type brownie that needs no icing. The recipe came from an old church cookbook from my childhood.

Your are so right...these brownies do not need icing. They turned out wonderfuly moist and chocolately. I added walnuts. I threw out my other brownie recipe and replaced it with this. Thanks so much, Mainecooncat!
