✓ Hepburn's Brownies: This is the original recipe that ran in Ladies Home Journal in 1975. Nearly 40 years later, it's still our favorite. This recipe has been reprinted by various sources and I uploaded the original after noticing that changes had been made to the original version. Like that old party game where you whisper something to a person who passes it on and, in the end, it doesn't match what was originally said... Anyway, this is the time-yellowed original, just as she said it.
