And since little girls do love brownies,
I also want to give you the recipe for these delicious "Favorite Bakery Brownies" which are so easy to make.
I have several books including a book that opens back and ties to present Green Gables with two levels and all the rooms we have loved - including Anne's bedroom.
I own another book which just has wonderful craft ideas for children and another with recipes such as Diana Barry's Raspberry Cordial. We sometimes make it at Christmastime.
Here is the recipe for the brownies:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
To make these brownies you will: melt 2 sticks of butter in a medium saucepan, and add 6 Tablespoons of cocoa adding 2 cups of sugar and beat until all melted. Remove the pot and add 4 eggs, and 1 1/2cups sifted flour and mix well. Add 1-2 tablespoons of milk as needed for moisture. Lastly, stir in 1 cup chopped walnuts.
Pour batter into a butter greased and floured 9 x 12 baking pan
and bake for 30 minutes
After you have taken the brownies out of the oven to cool slightly, melted 1/2 stick of butter in a small sauce pan on low, stir in 2 cups of confectioners sugar and 3 Tbs cocoa plus 1-2 Tbs milk Use a mixer to blend all quickly after warm and pour on top spreading evenly across. Sprinkle 1/2 cup chopped walnuts on top. After they cool - cut them into squares or rectangles.
The wonderful books by L. M. Montgomery would be perfect for your child to read this summer!
