Specialty Recipe

Executive Mansion Budget Crunch Brownies

The first family likes to serve this dessert during receptions. Since our state is in the process of dealing with a large budget shortfall, we like to stick to the tried and true recipes that can be prepared on a shoestring budget. This recipe fits the bill; we hope you like it. ... Governor and Mrs. Michael F. Easley
