I love Blonde Brownies! This recipe makes some of the best brownies ever. It came from a 1954 Carolina Farmer magazine that I found in my Grandma's house (along with some fabrics and handsewn nine-patch blocks) long after she passed away. The magazine was quite musty, so I copied down the recipe and threw the magazine away. Now you know what I want for Mother's Day!
1/4 cup shortening, melted
1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup nuts, chopped (pecans are the best!)
Mix shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Stir in nuts. Bake in greased 7 x 11 pan at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream whenever you need a favor from me!
