Double Decker Deliciousness


It was wonderful to have a day off yesterday. I accomplished a fair amount, including baking these delicious double decker brownies, chose by Beth of Suppilicious.


I understand that some of the TWD bakers had issues with the cookie layer sinking into the brownie layer. Not me. The cookie layer sat nicely on top and was even spreadable. I baked the brownies for about 60 minutes, and after cooling completely, the brownie layer was tender and fudge-like. I put cinnamon chips in the cookie layer, which added a little something extra to the overall flavor.



My taste-tester daughter liked the brownie layer, but couldn't see any point in the cookie layer. To each her own.



It's helpful to have a variety of brownie recipes in one's repertoire, I believe, and this one is a lovely addition.

Yours look great - properly separated. Mine just sort of blended into one chocolatey bar cookie kind of thing. :) But people at work seemed to like them anyway. Me? I'd rather just have a brownie or a cookie, I think.

It's very helpful to have several brownie recipes around. Got any you want to send over? :)

BTW - I was going to guess that the animal cookies you made were llamas. But once I reached the bottom I saw that you had posted the answer.

I did like the brownie recipe, but I agree with your taste tester.

Glad yours did so well.
