Kathy B's Mmmmmoist Brownie Recipe

As a college freshman, I was delighted to  open a package of these
wonderful mmmmoist brownies. My neighbor from back home baked
and sent them  to me to warm my heart on a cold winter's day.
Thirty-five years later, this continues to be my all time favorite
brownie recipe.
Be sure to follow the directions!
I messed up a big batch of these because I forgot that
Combining ingredients in the correct
order is important to the final results.
