Brownie
AAA
Brownie, Brownies - A chocolate bar cookie. The name comes from the deep-brown color of the cookie. The origins of the chocolate brownies is uncertain but it is felt that it was probably created by accident, the result of a forgetful cook neglecting to add baking powder to chocolate cake batter. Sears, Roebuck catalog in 1897 published the first known recipe for the brownies, and it quickly became very popular (so popular that a brownie mix was even sold in the catalog). ref: whatscookingamerica.net
