Palmer House Brownies

Pop quiz.  Where did the birth of the brownie happen?  If you said Chicago, you win. (Actually, we all win — the world is a better place with brownies.) It started at the Palmer House for the 1896 World’s  Fair as a desert you could walk around the fair with.  I made a couple of changes.  I did away with the gluten by using coconut flour.  I also upped the vanilla, lowered the sugar and did away with the apricot preserves so traditional yet updated.  I hope you like it.
