I've prepared this special recipe for many an open house and potluck dinner. It came from an old roommate, who is now a grandmother. While in our early 20s, we never imagined we'd be sharing brownie recipes after all these years.

  2. Spread into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs (do not overbake). Cool completely on a wire rack.

Pour into a small heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in corner of bag. Pipe thin lines 1 in. apart widthwise. Beginning about 1 in. from a wide side, gently pull a toothpick through the lines to the opposite side. Wipe toothpick clean. Then pull toothpick through lines in opposite directions. Repeat over entire top at 1-in. intervals. Cut into bars. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.

"DELICIOUS! I've been trying brownie recipes for years, looking for the perfect brownie. I think I'm done now--this is a winner! We like our brownies without frosting, so I did not try the topping. I used walnuts--just because I had them. I'm sure I'll make these again SOON!!"
