Making some Blonde Brownies

While visiting my Mom last week she nonchalantly slipped me this cut out section of her newspaper's American Profile section.  I asked her what was so important for me to see and quickly she responded "I know you are always baking and cooking and I thought maybe you'd whip me up some of these".  Too funny!!! She does love sweets so today that is just what I'm doing making some Blonde Brownies.  Hope you enjoy the recipe and I am sure Mom will enjoy the Brownies.. Happy Baking! (I'll be wrapping some and freezing them for her).  The remainder will be devoured by our grandchildren.  Enjoy!!

Happy Baking from my kitchen to yours,
