Who doesn’t like a good old classic cookie and brownies? These are the first pastries we learned to bake. Let’s say we learned how to make cookies when we were really young. We watched our Mom bake in the kitchen. As vividly as I can remember, I have a photo of me when I was 5 years old curiously looking as my Mom was decorating a cake. I guess you have to start them small. Little did we know, our interest in baking was always there. It just needs time to appreciate and know that you have it in you. If you don’t try, how will you know? This wasn’t learned overnight. Baking needs a lot more patience and precision than you think. This “brookie”, brownie and cookie might seem simple but when it’s baked longer, it gets tough and dry. Baked lesser spells disaster. Yes, we have had our share of mishaps in the kitchen. But we keep on trying and improving. If you love something, you do what it takes to be better at it. It’s not an overnight success. If your first cookie isn’t perfect, just try again. This brookie is the perfect marriage between a brownie and a cookie, it’s soft and chewy and oh so chocolatey! The salt balances everything. Great for a mid morning tea or afternoon snack. Or pretty much anything in between.
We know there are heaps of recipes available online. We tried that drill before! Let’s say some authors doesn’t really share their secret. Some stuff are edited. Won’t blame them though! If you have an original recipe, it’s yours. It’s precious as gold. Oftentimes, you’ll wonder why the outcome is not the same in the photos or why yours turned out to be flat and dry. There are several factors that can affect your product. We won’t deal with that. Disclaimer: We’re not baking experts and we certainly don’t hold any degree in baking. (Although we hope we did!) Make friends with the internet! Todays’ generation is lucky to just type anything and Google displays the answer in a click. I can still remember the days when I’d spend my time looking and reading at recipe books in our University’s library instead of studying that big bulky Medical and Surgical Nursing book! haha. Well, nursing and baking, they do rhyme but we’re still trying to dissect how the two correlates. Meanwhile, if you’re craving for a brownie and cookie at the same time, why not try to make this recipe and tag us in social media, share your photos and let us know your thoughts! Happy Baking!
