There was a time that everyone called for brownies………well, they still do. We also hear the cheers for Blondies and I believe they are as beloved as Brownies.
Funny, as a child, it was not brownies that I asked for. It was eclaires filled with a rich custard. Cream filled cookies was second and Mallowmars was third.
