 Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Brownies
Some of the strawberry jam I put up every year makes its way into these brownies. I like to bake up a batch as a special treat for the learning-disabled students I teach. My husband and three sons enjoy them, too. We farm 200 acres and grow a huge garden. —Teresa Jansen, Advance, Missouri
