Mix up a batch of brownies. (Feel free to use your favorite from-scratch recipe)
Prepare your cast iron skillet. (Everyone does this differently it seems, so just make sure you prepare it in a way that will ensure your brownies will not stick.)
Pour 1/3 of your brownie batter into your prepared skillet.
I used 19 Oreos and placed them over the batter. Pour remaining 2/3 of batter over Oreos. Be sure to cover them all!
Bake for about 35 minutes. Since the skillet retains heat so well you will want to remove them a couple minutes before they are completely done. I inserted a toothpick at 35 minutes and when it was removed there were a few tiny wet crumbs. This is good.
Take the brownies out of the oven and let them sit for about five minutes. Then scoop some vanilla ice cream over the top and drizzle with a few crushed Oreos. You can also use some Hot Fudge. Maybe even some marshmallow topping. Or caramel. Or butterscotch sauce. Enjoy!
Connie, Vickie, Helen and Sandy - weary of always swapping recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas and entertaining -- we decided to post them here. They are mostly southern, as we are -- proudly hailing from Kingsport, Tennessee, Dobyns-Bennett High School, and Trevecca Nazarene College.
Butter, mayo, and southern accents are key ingredients. Hope you enjoy - we certainly have!
