TWD: Tribute to Katherine Hepburn Brownies
This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie treat was Tribute to Katherine Hepburn Brownies. I have to confess, I felt a little sorry for them. You see, there are some weeks when I would have been really excited about brownies (especially almost flourless ones) and these were yummy brownies, but they came in the wake of a lot of other chocolate concoctions, so I didn’t muster up my usual brownie enthusiasm. The flavors of cinnamon, chocolate, and espresso in these brownies reminded me a lot of the Cinnamon Squares TWD made at the beginning of June. I said it then and I’ll say it again – it’s a terrific combination! And due to the low flour content, these are infallible brownies: you can give them a short amount of baking time for a gooey brownie or leave them in a little too long like I did and still have a chewy brownie.
This recipe gets a 7 for Deliciousness and a 2 for Effort, giving them an EDR of 3.5. Many thanks to Lisa of Surviving Oz for selecting these and designing TWD’s awesome new logo (which I need to figure out how to put on my sidebar)! You can find the recipe on Lisa’s site and see what the other bakers thought via the TWD site. I’m leaving for vacation on Thursday, so I will be attempting to bake next week’s treat in a strange kitchen. Luckily I have a couple rewinds on reserve if it doesn’t work out.
