Grandma Brown’s Homemade Brownies

Grandma Brown’s Homemade Brownies

When I was growing up my grandma used to cook and bake all of the time.  I was the baker in the family with Grandma.  Before she passed away, she hand wrote her recipes for me and I am going to share them with you.  Some of them are left up for interpretation so I will do my best.

It is rare to find any homemade baking recipes these days, when you can buy brownies in a box, but Grandma's are the best. Enjoy!
