If you like a fudgy brownie this is the one for you! The original recipe came from an old Southern Living book series that my Mom has. My baby brother would make this recipe and set up a brownie stand in the summer in leiu of the usual lemonade stand! We made this so much as kids the page it is printed on has fallen out of the book... I use melted butter in place of the shortening. This is good with or without the glaze.
