Welcome Home Brownies

My favorite daughter (only daughter) has been vacationing in the Keys for almost 2 weeks and she is finally coming home tomorrow!!! I am making her favorite meal, Calzones; and since the main course is  fairly labor intensive I thought I'd make the dessert the day before. These brownies are rich, chocolaty and moist, you'll love the lightness of the frosting, the flavor melts on your tongue.  These make the perfect treat for any special occasion.

Ingredients for Brownies
1 1/2 c Flour
2 c Sugar
10 TBSP Cocoa Powder
1 c Shortening
1 tsp Vanilla
4 Eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a 9x13 pan. Mix eggs, shortening and sugar together, add vanilla. Add cocoa and the flour and mix together. Batter with be thick. Bake for 30 minutes.

 Ingredients for Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
1 Box Powdered Sugar
4 TBSP Cocoa
1 Stick Butter
3-4 TBSP Milk
1 tsp Vanilla

Using a mixer, beat all ingredients together on medium speed until creamy, frost cooled brownies.

Right out of the oven, the smell was divine!
