Don’t Forget Your Old Tricks

I talk too much or not enough, I am terrible at cleaning my house, I forget to write back, I forget to call back, my back gets up, I don’t work out, I don’t do my hair or wear rings, I tape things to the wall, I get up too early, I get all welled up at school meetings, I’m not easy and I’m not getting easier.
Which is why I’m telling you, don’t forget your old tricks. I have been making butterscotch brownies since I could stir.
They are a big help with community living.
Sift the flour three times and then measure 3/4 of a cup by spooning the flour into the cup slightly above the edge. Scrape the excess off with a knife. No tapping, no banging. You don’t have to do it this way, but if you don’t, they won’t come out right.
Whisk in 1 teaspoon of baking powder and a good pinch of salt. Melt 1/4 cup of butter and let it cool. Mix in 3/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 egg. Bake in a buttered 8 inch square pan at 350 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes. They should be at that point where you’re not sure if they’re done yet. You don’t want them gooey in the middle but you don’t want them to be completely set either. Take them out.
Cool, eat, appreciate the repair of good sugar.
