A brownie is about as American as you can get, and I make this special dessert only on Independence Day. Why settle for just a square when you can have a whole slice? Pair it with a glass of ice-cold milk for a refreshing treat. —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped almonds

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs, corn syrup and extract; mix well. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking powder. Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Drain chopped cherries on paper towels. Fold the cherries, almonds and chips into batter.
