tester brownies and pb crinkles

Soooo, I made some Rum Raisin Fudge Brownies, a tester recipe for Hannah's new book, and they are fabulous. The raisins make them gorgeous chewy, and the flavour could rock socks off! I haven't made many brownies in my day, but I do know that I'm on the fudgey end of preference, and also these have rum in them! They are dangerously good, I'm telling you.... :o~~~~~

Not too far behind are the peanut butter cookies from More Great Good Desserts. They're a daintier recipe than the dense blocks of my youth, but low oil, high flavour and sooooo pretty and easy to make. So not my ultimate PB cookie recipe, but an excellent one nonetheless. Oh, and dynamite in coffee.

Yay sugar!

Mmm, you did great on those brownies. Isn't testing fun?!!

The brownies do look great! And I'm happy to see that they cut well for you, too. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the next recipe... Once I get a chance to figure out what that will be, of course.

I would never think to put raisins in brownies, but it sounds interesting... All this baking is making me want to whip out the Joy of Vegan Baking!

Low-oil PB cookies--such wonders exist?!

And baked goods with rum get my stamp of approval. Funnily enough, I just posted cupcakes with beer in them. I decided that baking with beer is the best thing ever.

Brownies looks delectable & moist and rum to boot- yum.

I am jealous, I want rum-raisin brownies!

Theresa said...

The brownies look good, but that stack of peanut butter cookies is making my stomach grumble.

Judy said...

'Daintier than the dense blocks of my youth' - I had to laugh at this as that is exactly how I remember pb cookies! My mom made the best ones, so oily and heavy. Mmm, I'm getting hungry now.

Those brownies were so good! Your photo turned out beautifully. It looks like you got just the right texture. I haven't had a PB cookie in what seems like a zillion years!
