I have been making this brownie recipe since I was little. No matter how many brownie recipes I try, I will always come back to these. It calls for butter or shortening. I have used both with good results, I have also used half butter and half shortening. That also works. These brownies need to be frosted. I will give my mom credit for this recipe since she is the one who taught me how to make them. Thanks Mom!!
