Texas Brownies

Well pretty much everyone has one of these.... but for our posterity's sake this one is our family recipe. We love these.

1 lb butter (4 sticks) - you can also do 1/2 butter 1/2 shortening
2 C water
8 Tbl cocoa
* melt in microwave and stir together well

4 eggs
1 C milk
2 tsp vanilla
4 C sugar
4 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
* add to the above

Blend together well. Pour into a greased cookie sheet. This will make 1 1/2 sheets (think) or 2 sheets (thin brownies). Bake 350 approx 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven, let col then frost. YUM!

FROSTING
4 oz cream cheese
1 stick butter (melted)
1 bag powdered sugar
1 tlb vanilla
cocoa

Cream cheese in the frosting. Sounds yummy. I love cream cheese and have never had these made that way. Now I am tempted to make a batch. :)
