Bangor Brownies from Mary Burrill
These were the first brownies published in the Unites States. They were published in the Bangor Daily News of Bangor Maine in the early 1900s. Sis says that they are not quite as wonderful as Brownies tend to be now, but they are certainly worth a try as a curiosity.

a pinch of salt
1/2 cup broken walnuts
