Bake Away the Winter Blues baking Blonde Brownies from Clabber Girl

I love old fashioned recipes! It brings back wonderful memories cooking with family! is just the site to help you rediscover many fond memories when cooking with family was so extra special and getting to lick the spoon, was the highlight of the day of cooking!

Life was simple then, but still can be. Learn to take a time to share kitchen time with family. The best
thing about cooking together, besides the memories, is the bonds you will form with each other
which can last a life time!

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 35 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center of the brownies and make sure it comes out clean before removing from the oven. Cool completely before frosting and cut into squares, then garnish with nut halves or lemon zest.
To prepare frosting: Beat the butter until smooth and fluffy. Add half of the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, and beat until incorporated.
