This recipe is converted from my Gramma’s blonde brownie recipe. Right before I got married, she gave me a little book of handwritten recipes. The book was filled with all her favorites that she had cooked for years. These wooden spoon blondies are the first recipe in the dessert section.
So many years later, that recipe book is still one of my prized possessions. When I miss her, I will read through the recipes and take a walk through my memories.
Gramma made these brownies all the time, whether we were going to someone’s house, having company over or going camping. If there was a crowd, she would always bake these.
The last line on my recipe card says that all mixing must be done with a wooden spoon. I will be honest with you, I have never made these brownies any other way.
No mixer needed, just a bowl and a wooden spoon.
