A fast-to-fix peanut butter and chocolate frosting tops these moist brownies that are a sweet way to use up your green garden squash. “We really like the cake-like texture of these brownies,” writes Allyson Wilkins of Amherst, New Hampshire.
These moist and cakey brownies came from my mom’s old cookbook. Mashed potatoes may seem like an unusual ingredient, but this recipe took first place at a local festival.Marlene Gerer, Denton, Montana
For company and every time there is a local bake sale, I bake a batch of these fabulous brownies. Most everyone who tastes them says, "Yum! These are the best brownies I have ever eaten!" My cooking background came from my mother. Just watching her helped educate me in the "ways of the kitchen".
I always have my eye out for a good recipe, like the one of these marvelous golden brownies. It's hard to eat just one! We own and operate and family homestead farm. Cooking, crafts, gardening and grandchildren fill my days.
I wanted something special to take to a church potluck, so I invented these layered treats. They are great for St. Patrick's Day as well. The brownies are topped with a mint-flavored mousse and bittersweet chocolate icing. —Lori Risdal, Sioux City, Iowa
