I used Creamy Jif and added a shake of cinnamon and a little bit of vanilla to the actual batter and popped these in the oven for 28 minutes; they came out just how I like my brownies. They were "fudgy" in the sense that they were extremely dense and moist. Also, I omitted the frosting because I'm not a big fan of frosting on brownies in general. Delicious!
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
Me and my boyfriend have been together for 11 years now. We live on 40 acres and have 6 dogs and 4 Tennessee Walkers. We both work a lot of hours so there is never enough time in a day to get everything done. I absolutely love the outdoors. I also enjoy lifting weights, reading and playing with all of my beautiful animals. I absolutely love, love and love to cook. I like to cook a variety of things and also like love to bake. I like to just get in the kitchen and experiment with different things. If something does not turn out for me such as pie crust or gravy I will keep trying until I can make it work. Only problem is, when I finally make it work it may not work again the time after that. It is fun though and I do consider myself a pretty good cook for the most part. I also love slow cooker recipes. Those are my most favorite in the winter months.
