Tis the season, Pa Lloyd managed to get our Christmas tree up, and I got the decorations on. I love doing that, so many of our decorations are ones our children made or were given to me by friends and family. So each decoration holds special memories, I know it’s time to think of maybe a table top tree but then I wouldn’t be able to use all of my decorations, I’m not ready to give that up yet. I gave myself a Christmas present this year, we had a gas insert put in our fireplace. It was no longer safe for the man of the house to get up on the roof to clean the chimney and I love a fire, it’s so cozy and festive. It looks like the real thing so I am one happy Grandma! Now I have to decorate the mantle and hang the stockings. What used to take me a half day to decorate takes me 2 days. Oh well gives me something to do!
Have you ever had a recipe in your recipe file for years that you have never gotten around to use? Years ago I copied a recipe off a Bisquick box for a Impossible Brownie pie, it’s probably been in my box for 20 years. I had a craving for dessert a month or so ago so finally tried it, now I have made it three times (once I took it over to my granddaughter’s). It’s quick and easy and doesn’t make such a large amount so good for the two of us. I hope that you will like it too.
Impossible Brownie Pie:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup bisquick
4 oz. semi sweet chocolate, melted, cooled for 5 minutes
1/2 cup nuts chopped (optional)
Put all ingredients in a blender except nuts. Blend for 2 minutes, stir in nuts then pour into a greased pie pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes, serve with ice cream or whipped topping, good to serve at room temperature too.
Happy decorating and have a good week!
