"Love these brownies! Have made them for years. Follow recipe exactly, except we prefer walnuts instead of pecans. Delish!"

"These were really yummy. I agreed that they should be put in a smaller pan, so I used my 8x8 and had to adjust the temp a couple times, so I'll continue to play around with that next time. I omitted the nuts because I'm generally the only person that likes them; I used the semisweet chips in the recipe, then sprinkled a couple tablespoons of dark chocolate chips on top. They were a big hit!"

"This is a great recipe! I have made it for years from my son's preschool brownie cookbook. If you cook the butter and sugar to almost candy consistency, using a wooden spoon, then pour into bowl, add 1tbsp. of vanilla. Add baking powder, and 1 tsp. salt, add flour first to coat chocolate chips, then add 1 pkg. of chocolate chips, and top with 2 cups whole pecans in a sprayed 13x9 pan. bake 350' for 23-25 minutes. Do not overbake.

They will be abit soft, but go better with milk this way. The chips will melt abit, making them better than chocolate chip cookies, and twice as fast to make. Great for road trips, Thanks for sharing!"

"This recipe was AWFUL! After 40 minutes of baking the crust was practically burnt and the middle was completely raw! I would give this zero stars but unfortunately that's not possible. I would not recommend this and would never use this recipe again!"

"These were very good. Made them exactly as written, except in a 9x9 pan, and they came out perfect. Can't imagine making them in a 13x9 without doubling the recipe. Seems like they would come out too thin."

"I made these exactly as the recipe says, except in a 9x13 pan as I don't have an 11x7pan, and they turned out great! These remind me of Nestle' chocolate Chip Bars and were very simple and fast to make."

"I'd made these brownies and I used 1/2 brown sugar & 1/2 white sugar instead of just packed brown sugar & added 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup to the creamed mixture. Instead of 1/2 cup pecans, I used 1-1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. I kept the butter, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking powder, salt the same! I used a 12x8" disposable baking pan & greased and floured the pan! I'd also added 1/8 cup all-purpose flour with the chocolate chips! Thank you, Anna Jean Allen, for sharing this recipe! I've used it and it's a recipe I've turned to from time to time! delowenstein"
