Bridgette suggested a simple dessert of brownie bites, and she and Jessica volunteered to bake them. I decided to add a bit of variety to the dessert table for those
That's when I noticed the last instruction on the recipe Mama had provided. It said:
Cut and roll in powdered sugar while still hot.
I NEVER recalled these sweet treats including that step.
Then, I called Mama to make certain I had the correct recipe in front of me. After all, I was serving this to guests and I didn't want to make a mistake about a delicious dessert.
She assured me that the recipe was indeed the correct one and the treats would turn out just as I recalled from days gone by.
Then, I mentioned that I NEVER remember having these with the powdered sugar step.
Her response - and I quote:
Well, I might have done that the first time I made them but I didn't think all that was necessary after that.
I informed Mama that I felt really deprived.
I informed her that I felt cheated.
I informed her that I felt misled.
She just giggled and suggested that I sprinkle them with some powdered sugar and it would be fine.
