Whenever I take these to a gathering, someone will usually announce. "Lisa brought those brownies"—and everyone knows exactly which ones they are!
We live on 10-1/2 acres out in the country with our daughters, 7 and 4.
Often, I'll find a recipe that sounds interesting, copy it down and put my own twist on it. That's just what I did with these Brownie Ice Cream Cones. I make them for our children when they have friends over. —Marlene Rhodes, Panama City, Florida
These moist, cinnamon-flavored brownies are quite easy to make. The recipe can also be doubled and baked in a jelly roll pan. My husband and I live on a farm in central Nebraska and have two grown daughters.
I MAKE this special treat for my family whenever there's a birthday or anniversary. Even without a special occasion, it caps any meal with a festive flair.
I especially like to prepare the brownies in a heart shape for Valentine's Day and garnish them with berries.

My children and grandchildren are the light of my life. I always try to have homemade cookies or brownies on hand for them when they visit. This recipe is one of their favorites.

I discovered this recipe in our local newspaper, gave it a try, and my family loved it. If you pack the dry ingredients in a quart canning jar, you can cover the lid with Christmasy fabric for a quick, festive touch. —Lynn Dowdall, Perth, Ontario
“My Mom made this treat for me and my brother every Halloween as we were growing up, " recalls Janice Korsmeyer of Highland, Illinois. "Today, my own daughter enjoys it each year, too. It's so easy to make, always a great hit with children and a fun tradition to pass on.”
