I am very much a fan of the brownie – the dense, slightly chewy kind, with a crackly top – I think I’d choose one over a slice of cake any day. So last night, when our friend, food writer Gwendolyn Richards, showed up at an event we were cooking for with a pan of her brownies with sea salt and lime, I took note. (And a brownie.) They were exquisite.
I’m a huge fan of brownies – and chocolate chip cookies – and Oreos. What if the three of them got together and morphed into the best of both brownie and cookie worlds? These brownies have a chocolate chip cookie dough base, sandwich cookies in the middle, and a fudgy chocolate brownie top. This is how to win friends and influence people.
