Brownie baking tip

Brownie baking tip

I know they always say for best results always follow the recommended cooking instructions but I always find if I bake my brownies at 325 for 25 min. instead of 350 for 30 min they come out much chewier, moist and fuggy . You always want to take your brownies out of the oven when they are still slightly gooey in the middle because they will continue to cook while cooling in the pan.

Making Do With One Cookie Sheet

Making Do With One Cookie Sheet

If you only have one cookie sheet, line it with foil before baking the cookies. After baking, slide the foil off the pan and set the cookies to cool on a rack. Rinse your pan under cold running water and pat dry. Re-foil and lay your next batch of cookies on the sheet.
