I wanted to make a little something sweet for our POPs in the Park outing this weekend. And of course it’s last minute so I have to find a recipe that I have all the ingredients in house for. So my go to source for yummy easy desserts is Paula Deen’s Lady & Son’s Cookbook
There are so many good recipes in this cookbook!! I will name just a few in case you already have it and would like some recommendations to try: Mini Onion Quiches, Broccoli Salad, Zucchini & Corn Casserole, Sweet Potato Bake, Tomato Pie, Pineapple Casserole, Gooey Butter Cakes, Butter Cookies, and the list could go on.
Let’s move on to a new recipe I tried this weekend. “Aunt Glennis’ Blonde Brownies.” These were super easy and contained items you’ll most likely keep in your pantry.
You start by beating the eggs and butter together. Add the brown sugar. Gradually add flour and mix well.
Then fold in the nuts, coconut and chocolate chips.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool and cut in squares.
And enjoy! Yum! If you try ‘em let me know what you think!!
