This was a recipe that I created a few years ago and earned me a spot as a finalist in the 44th Pillsbury Bake-off Contest.  This was such an honor and the experience is so memorable.  The brownies are pretty darn good too!!

I made these a few weeks ago to take to a party and several people asked me to make them again for some upcoming events.  I think they look like they should be a dessert you serve in the fall.  

The year I made them for the Pillsbury Bake-off, I also made several batches of them, cut into smaller pieces, and handed them out at my local Kroger store.  I made them for my co-workers, and the staff where I bank, grocery shop, my hairstylist, my grandkid’s teachers, and my doctor’s office.  I even took them to our local radio station and television station where I did interviews.   These brownies were famous for a few months around here.

I hope that your family and guests like them if you give them a try.

Spread into prepared pan.  It works well lining the pan with parchment paper, which I did not do on this day.  I just sprayed it with PAM.
