    These are great! I bake the brownies in a 10 inch cast iron skillet lined with parchment paper for easy removal. I don’t usually have nuts on hand so I add 1/2 cup of peanut butter.

      The shortening is added for the texture of the brownies in this recipe. In the same way if you make cookies that call for shortening and you use butter instead you will find they spread all over the cookie sheet.All oils and such are not made alike they each have their own job.
