Raspberry Truffle Brownies

Back in 2000 we were relocated again, this time about 1 1/2 hours from my parents. This meant we saw them a little more often, but it was also just 3 months before my Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. When that happened I ended up spending even a little more time there of course and since reading is something I love to do I passed some of the time reading everything I could get my hands on.

She had a pile of old Country Woman magazines from 1990-1992 in a pile that she had received from my Grandmother (who received them from???) and I devoured them front to back. The photos, the stories... and the recipes!

This is one of the recipes featured in one of their old magazines. Luckily recipes like this never go out of style - not even 18 years later.
