This past weekend I did a bad, bad, thing.
It involved browned butter, marcona almonds, parchment paper, and an 8x8 pan.
Plus a knife and the red cutting board.
Did I mention it was all Joy the Baker's fault? As if the browned butter wasn't enough she had to go and show me marcona almonds, which I had never baked with before.
That salty sweet combination of the chocolate chips and the almonds combined with the rich brown sugar blonde brownie is drop dead delicious. Close your eyes and moan with pleasure goodness.
I left a few out for Dottie and Chris, then dutifully wrapped the remainder in plastic and placed them in a container. I hid them from myself in the recesses of the freezer. With any luck, I will not be able to find them and when my next wave of out of town guests come I will be able to offer them a sweet treat. That's the plan anyway.
