Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling
Old fashioned sweetness, NO gooey frosting or tons of butter! The shortening gives great texture and the cocoa gives just the right amount of chocolate flavor, perfect size for 1 - 3 people, have made numerous times
I think this is the same recipe I made in 1964 in HomeEconomics! It is simple and delicious!
I realize that certain factors may have affected the way they came out, but these brownies were "not my best." I believe the shortening was to blame, though. I suppose the acrid taste of the brownies was due to my insufficient knowledge of shortening... I will attempt to make these brownies again, though. Thanks very much for the recipe!
Didn't like the shortening taste,not enough sugar. To me too bland BUT the texture was terrific--a dream. So, I had a double batch, was in a bind, frosted cut squares GENEROUSLY w/milk choc.frstng. and they were a HIT!!!!
