Buttermilk Sheet Cake Brownies

My dear friend Sue Smith is famous for her Buttermilk Sheet Cake Brownies. They are simply divine! We were at her nephew's baptism and everyone was talking about how good her brownies are and how they want the recipe. Well, since Sue was sweet enough to share it with me a while ago, and with her permission, I told everyone that I would post it on my blog. I needed a picture so I grabbed my daughter's camera. Sorry it's a little blurry and on a paper plate, but trust me these are delicious! Sue also makes wonderful Vanilla Texas Sheet Cake which was also served at the baptism so I took a picture of those too and will post those next!
