Blonde Brownies flood me with memories, reminding me of traditions, family and friends. These delicious treats were a staple in my home while growing up. Mother typically prepared them for after-school treats, slumber parties, and any family/friend get-together. My cousin, whom I’ve not seen or talked to in many years, wrote this week, asking for the recipe. I was surprised and delighted to share it with him, as he remembers “Aunt Edythe” serving them whenever he and his family visited.
