  1. Made theseand had the neighbors over for a Labor Day pool party. They were gone in no time. Made no adjustments to these, as these were soft, moist, and delicious. Mine were done in 40 minutes, baking time right on the dot. Made for Zaar Stars.
  2. This made a great dessert for bunko night. Not too sweet and very chocolatey. It felt weird adding the eggs last but worked out great. Made for Best of 2011.
  3. Fab-u-lous! We just loved these brownies! I must admit that they were made for DH to give to favorite clients, and after a small sampling, he didn't get as many to give away! ;-) I followed your directions to the 'T', although it seems like I typically add the eggs before adding the flour, but it didn't seem to make a difference. They are fudgey and moist, and I'm saving them to my faves! Thanks so much for sharing, Pat!
  4. A perfect brownie recipe! I absolutely love the slightly crunchy top to the brownies but the insides are so perfectly moist! I used my KA mixer to mix the batter and glad I did as waiting till the end to add the eggs makes it really more difficult but then you get this fluffy batter that makes a fabulous brownie in the end. The only slight change was I had to use chopped almonds instead of pecans as I realized too late that I did not have pecans on hand. Any nut would work well with this brownie batter for sure. Just pure delight. Thanks for sharing in WTTM tag game.
  5. Can I give 10 stars - I wish I could !! This made an enormous amount of addicitive and to die for brownies. I got a text from DD " brownies are magnifique" - that says it ALL !!!!


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
