Larisa and I had to tag team this one because we were shacked up together for the better part of last week. Which was probably a good thing because she is a much more informed baketress than I.
So we kicked these brownies into high gear.
Personally, I would give them two thumbs up. They were the best brownies I have ever had. Maybe I don't get out much. We followed the recipe but Larisa got greedy and dumped in a bag of Chocolate Chips when I wasn't looking. She's crazy like that. I feel they were a smart addition even though it might be breaking the axiom that is,
The Perfect Baked Brownie.
Here is a great suggestion from the expert, Larisa. When you go back for seconds, thirds, and fourths, make sure to heat up the brownie for a couple of seconds in the microwave. She is absolutely right. It makes something grand even GRANDER.
Oh, as a side note. We also made the Salted Carmel Sauce a few weeks ago and served it over an authentic New York Style Cheesecake straight from Carnegie Deli.
Divine, just divine. It took two tries to get it right. We came to the conclusion that we didn't let it boil long enough (was that right, Larisa?). The second time was much better. We watched the coloring and used that as more of a guide than the actual cooking time.
