Made with rich, dark chocolate, these luscious layered brownies beautifully combine salty and sweet. It also comes with its very own story. While enlisting more taste testers for the recipes in this cookbook, we naturally thought of John Norton, a trusted friend who is notorious for his sweet tooth. After consuming half a pan of these brownies, he came up with the “system”—we now fly a red flag off the porch to signal when he is to stop and sample on his way home from work!
Just like grandma used to make—and Gramma Fitz still does! These cookies are chewy and not too sweet, with plenty of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice folded into a batter that’s packed with juicy raisins. Serve with a tall glass of milk for lots of smiles.
