    Hints, Tips and Serving Suggestions for brownies

    Umm, warm, freshly baked brownies, a wondrous American invention.
    Just about everyone knows that smell. The most important ingredient
    in brownies is chocolate. That's the wonderful, life-fulfilling, do
    just about anything for, smell. Brownies are a cross between a
    cookie and a cake. Classified as a bar cookie, they usually come in
    one of two textures: fudge or cake. The "fudgy" type of brownie is
    very moist and dense. The cake brownie is light and airy.

    Hints and Tips:
    They keep well in an airtight container.
    Don't refrigerate. It will dry-out brownies.
    They'll keep for 4 to 6 months in the freezer.
    Only use glass or shiny metal pans. Dark or non-stick pans will
    cause brownies to be soggy and low in volume.
    Line pan with aluminum foil. This saves on cleanup.
    Only grease bottom of pan to allow for rising.
    Allow brownies to cool in pan before cutting.
    Cut cooled brownies with plastic or table knife to insure smooth-
    sided bars.
    Always use toasted nuts. This enhance the flavor of the nuts.

    Serving Suggestions:

    Brownie Hearts
    Lightly drizzle chocolate syrup and raspberry sauce on a dessert
    plate. Cut brownies with a heart shaped cookie cutter and place the
    heart in the center of the plate. Top the heart with piped whipped

    Brownie Sandwich
    Depending on depth of brownie, either use two or one brownie sliced
    horizontally. Soften your favorite flavor of ice cream. Spoon ice
    cream onto brownie, spreading evenly. Top with brownie. Wrap in
    plastic wrap and place on cookie sheet. Freeze until ice cream is

    Super Brownie Sunday
    Place one brownie square in a wide bowl. Top with one scoop of ice
    cream (vanilla, chocolate, mint chocolate, coffee, etc.). Drizzle
    with hot fudge sauce and sprinkle with Spanish peanuts.

    Layer brownie cubes with prepared pudding, whipped cream, and
    berries in a trifle bowl.

    Cut a nice square and serve it either with a glass of iced cold milk
    or hot steaming gourmet coffee. Why could be better?
