Sometimes I have no hope for the world. I went to Target and looked at their book section. Under the banner “Non-Fiction Best Sellers” were The Hobbit and vampire books. Under “Fiction Best Sellers” were self-help books, memoirs, and Mitt Romney’s No Apology. My husband shrugged this off as an honest mistake that anyone could make. I, dramatically, was horrified. Mistake? Mistake???! This is fifth-grade stuff, people.
Other times, I have the highest hopes and confidence in the world. Ever since I gifted myself The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook, my life has been 10x better. Every recipe I’ve made thus far has been an A+ winner.
These brownies are no exception.
Oh my gosh, when I took my first bite of this brownie, I felt like I was eating a stick of butter (IN AN EXTREMELY GOOD WAY, I PROMISE!!). Now that might turn some of you healthy people off, but trust me, these brownies are fudgy-cookie-doughy heaven. (And it’s not actually quite as bad as eating a stick of butter…I don’t think anyway…)
Enjoy my pictures, and then, please, I urge you, make these for yourself.
Start by stirring up your brownie batter.
Bake for 18 minutes.
Meanwhile, make your eggless cookie dough for the topping. Spread on cooled brownies.
Refrigerate until ready to eat, then cut into bars to serve. Look how fast that was?! OK, in full disclosure, these pictures were taken over the course of 2 hours, but it was worth it. (more…)
