Brownie Queen Strikes Again...

Well here I am again.  About to go and show off my work.  Not knitting this time 'round but something delicious and fun.

Now let me start by telling you a story about me and baking.  I can't bake cookies to save my life.  They never turn out.  Whether it is because of the ingredients I put in them or that I forget they are in the oven or do preheat the oven or let the dough sit out on the floor too long I am not completely sure.  I just can't seem to have them turn out.  Brownies, however, I am excellent at. 

It started when one night I got a craving for brownies and we did not have any brownie mix in the house.  So I pulled out my trusty Betty Crocker Cookbook and looked up brownies.  I made sure I had all the ingredients and went to town making homemade from scratch brownies.  Ever since then I have been the brownie queen.

My favorite brownies to make are a Yule tradition.  My mom when I was little would make peppermint brownies and I adored them, because mint and chocolate are the bestest thing ever.

Well you can see were this is going.  I started to make peppermint brownies as a regular thing.  This week I made a couple of batches of peppermint brownies and a pan of raspberry brownies, substituting raspberry flavoring for the peppermint flavoring. 

I did cheat a little on these.  Normally I make a glaze to go on top of homemade frosting.  I didn't make the glaze and I did not make the frosting. 

I bought frosting and added the flavoring to it.  I just was not in the place to deal with it at the time.  But the girls that got to eat them did not mind. 

I brought a couple of plates into my work that night.  They loved them.  One place was for the closing staff and the second plate was for the following morning crew. 

I had fun making them and have found out that baking with butter makes and even better brownie.  I ran out of butter on the last pan and had to use margarine, they did not turn out as nice.  I can't wait to make more and make the frosting and glaze style ones. 

Once I do that I might actually put up the recipe... we will see.
