Super Spud Brownies
3/4 cup mashed potatoes
(I make my mash potatoes with chicken broth and potatoes)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
Confectioners' sugar
In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, sugars, oil, eggs and 
vanilla. Combine the flour,  cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually 
add to potato mixture. Fold in pecans if desired. Transfer  to a 
greased 9-in. square baking pan.
 Bake at 350° for 23-27 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the 
center comes out clean. Cool on  a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' 
sugar. Cut into bars. Yield: 16 servings.
