Does 'zaar really need _another_ Brownie recipe? Probably not but this is a wonderful old recipe from the Edith Hansen cook book. It gives a chewy, dense brownie with an old fashioned flavor. Be careful to not overbake it. The original recipe calls for "part lard if desired" which I have left in as part of the recipe's charm but I always use margarine. Frosting these is gilding the lilly so I don't.
