It is so fun how food become so creative these days – the names of the food itself, the way how people combine two recipes together to create a new one… or how people mix and match ingredients from various recipes that they come out with one more amazing recipe.
Sorry, I was craving brownies for more than a week, but I don’t know why I couldn’t make one. Maybe I want something else – not the plain, classic one. A new one. Create my own? Not yet.
I think everyone wants to create theirs. I also want to create one, but baking is a kind of science that you need to get the right formula if you don’t want to end up crying. Well, for some, they really take the risk, but I don’t think I will be able to create one recipe that I could really say it originates from me. Maybe… one day! We don’t know.
Hmm… let me take back myself from the wonderland and accept the fact that what I can do for the meantime is combine two of my favorites – brownies and cookies. I’ve been seeing Brookies for as long as I can remember and I really wanted to try making some. When I baked Lily’s cookies, I did not use all the cookie batter and experimented on Brookies. I used the last brownie recipe I have which is a cake-like brownies. Since it’s a cake-like brownies, the cookie batter was heavier than the brownie batter that it did not ‘float’. I was expecting a cookie over the brownie cups, but I got a cookie ‘ball’ inside the brownie cups. I was just going to cry, but when I took a bite – wow, my two loves in one. It’s like the brownie married the cookie and they got a child named Brookie. 😀
I am thinking of making another batch of Brookies using different recipes to find out what went wrong with mine. I’d say that I’ll keep on trying until I found one that’s appealing to my eyes.
I hope you like this batch of Brookies. How about you? Have you tried making one? I want to know about the recipe you followed. 🙂
