Tuesdays with Dorie: chipster topped brownies
How many times have you been to a function where you were forced to decide between the chocolate chip cookies and the brownies because indulging in both just seemed like too much? Well, fear no more because Dorie Greenspan has solved this little problem by combining the two into the scrumptious chipster topped brownies, this weeks TWD selection.
You know, not that this is any less decadent than having them separately.
The cookie layer on top acts as a shield so the brownies below stay super moist and delicious, making the texture combination incredible. One person asked how I got that lovely gooey layer between the cookie and the brownie. The answer: I don’t know (except, you know, underbaking), but I wouldn’t change it for the world. The results were perfect.
I made the entire recipe to share with my mom’s ladies class at church, and they devoured my plate. Not at first, mind you because it was first thing in the morning. But word of mouth can be quite powerful in a ladies class, so they spread like wild! And thank goodness because if they had come home with me, I might have gone into a sugar coma due to my really low self control around them.
My favorite comment?
“So, are you going to be some sort of chef?”
“No, I’m going to be an engineer.”
So I would like to send a huge “Thank you!” to Beth of Supplicious for choosing this recipe for the week. You can find the recipe over on her blog or refer to pgs 94-95 of Baking from my Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
