This brings back such precious memories! I bought the cookbook when I was a young wife and mother.
Note: Be more generous with the powdered sugar than I was that time.
ohh that sounds like little brownies YUM!
Also, I recognize that dish ;) !
I just want to give everybody a heads up. The contents in cake mix boxes is shrinking by three ounces. The Betty Crocker mixes have already shrunk. Stock up on the other brands before they shrink too. Using the new size with the old recipies will screw up a lot of peoples baking. I would hate for anybody's holiday recipes to not turn out.:sad elf:
