So have you made the new brownie recipe on the cover of Bon Appetit? If you have, I’m anxious to hear your opinion. I made a batch yesterday and thought they were very good, but different. The brown butter adds kind of an unusual flavor, but what really surprised me was how extremely fudgy the texture was. Still, they’re really good! I used pecans instead of walnuts, but other than that one substitution I followed the directions. Not sure why mine are thinner than Alice Medrich’s, though. Maybe the big walnut chunks in Bon Appetit’s photo are just plumping up the brownies and making them seem fatter. One thing’s for sure — these brownies needed the nuts. With all that chocolate, the nuts were a welcome relief rather than a nuisance.
The Daily Cookie, 365 Tempting Treats for the Sweetest Year of Your Life, is now available! If you love baking or are looking for a great gift book, you can buy it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, or at your favorite book store. I hope you enjoy The Daily Cookie. Thanks for your support.
