Tips

No overbeating

No overbeating

Brownies and bar cookies should be beaten just enough to blend the ingredients well. Over-beating will cause them to rise too much, too fast with the result that they will fall and crack as they cool.


High Altitude Instructions are a recipe for failure

High Altitude Instructions are a recipe for failure

DO: add the extra flour, alter the amounts of oil and water as indicated in the high altitude instructions. DO NOT: Bake at 375 unless you intend to use the finished product as a weapon (i.e., blunt instrument) DO: Bake for the length of time that is recommended. BONUS TIP: Add a fourth egg. This will compensate for the issues with a sunken cake center - even when using 8 inch rounds.
