    PrimQuilter's Note:

    There was a restaurant famous for these in Nebraska, actually they were famous for all their desserts. These were always a family favorite and I've had the recipe for many years. This calls for 9 eggs and no it is not a misprint !

      These are AWESOME!! I used to make them all the time and then lost the recipe. I am so happy to have it back. I'm from Omaha so when I make them everyone thinks I bought it from the restaurant. ;)

      Oh my gosh! These brought back some good memories. I haven't been to Garden Cafe in probably 15 years, but my mom used to buy these for us all the time. Made these for my sister and I and we absolutely loved them! Thanks so much. I'll be making these for my mom when she comes into town this weekend, I know she'll love them as much as us!

      Thanks for posting this. I am from Omaha and these brownies are the best. Now, I can make them too! It was easy. I made them for a Christmas party and they were a hit! Very good.
