This is directly from the beloved actress Katharine Hepburn. I had written it down a long time ago. Apparently this is her family's recipe. These brownies are delicious and go great with some vanilla ice cream and hot fudge. Best eaten especially while watching a drama starring the famed actress! A must to add to your brownie recipe collections! I triple this recipe to make more, brownies don't last long in our house!
