These brownies, studded with big chunks of black walnuts, are crisp on top and chewy inside. Our friends have given this treat rave reviews, especially those in areas where black walnuts are hard to come by.—Catherine Berra Bleem, Walsh, Illinois
Ann Schenk (at Left) of Winnett, Montana, has used the recipe for Pancakes for One for years. Originally it served six. "As our kids grew up and left home, I scaled down the recipe," Ann says. "Now if my husband, Mike, or I have a taste for these pancakes, it's easy to make just a few."
When our two grown children were at home, I baked these brownies often. These days, I make them for big occasions—everyone thinks that they're quite nice. As a bonus, they're a good way to use up leftover sour cream.
