The brownie was born in the United States and while there are many stories as to its origins, everything points to Fannie Farmer. In 1905 she adapted her chocolate cookie recipe to a chocolate bar cookie baked in a rectangular pan. The brownie is classified as a bar cookie rather than a cake because brownies are finger food like cookies and cake is eaten with a fork.
For me, I will be forever thankful that the brownie came into existence. This recipe is so easy and will have you savoring every bite! Be sure to use the best cocoa you can buy to enhance your brownie experience.
Makes 12 to 14
