Magic Cookie Bar Brownies

There are tons of methods you could use, but today I came up with two ways of combining Magic Cookie Bars (aka Seven Layer Bars) with brownies. First, the lazy version — brownies topped with a flat layer of graham crackers, condensed milk, chips and nuts. And second, the more time consuming brownie composed of […]

Oreo Stack Brownie

This is a copycat version of a bar cookie I saw at Starbucks. Having had a fun day hanging out with Fuzz, shopping for camp stuff and perusing the shelves at Barnes and Noble, we stopped into Starbucks for a smoothie. I didn’t intend on buying a pastry and was able to resist the urge, […]

brownies with a macadamia cookie crust

Monkey see, monkey do, Katrina made brownies and I did too. I didn’t want to be too big of a copy cat, though. So instead of using Katrina’s recipe, I halved it, nixed the ganache, and added a base of white chocolate chunk macadamia cookie using some refrigerated dough. I wasn’t sure the experiment would […]

Girl Scout Thin Mint Brownies

Thin Mint Brownies

hin Mints are delicious, but I’m getting tired of eating them straight and have been trying to incorporate them into richer and more satisfying desserts.

The brownies have what I think is the perfect level of mint and their texture works well with the cookies.

New bittersweet brownies

As a birthday present, my mother gave me Alice Medrich’s new book, Chewy, Gooey, Crispy, Crunchy, Melt-in-Your Mouth Cookies. It has some interesting recipes, but the one I had to try first was “New Bittersweet Brownies”.   Alice’s description of “brownies with a texture between very moist cake and rich chocolate mousse” which she goes on […]
