Slutty Brownies



Slutty brownies are what you make when you need three chocolatey desserts in one- chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and America’s favorite cream-centered cookie, the glorious Oreo. I use double stuffed in my bars because the cream center is the best part. The Oreo cookie softens sandwiched in the middle of two ooey-gooey layers and the creme center kindly melts. Jessica Simpson explained where the name came from on Leno: They are slutty because a lot of things go in to them. (Cymbal crash!)

A lot of the recipes I saw out there in the internet world called for using a box mix for each bar layer. Not for me! Instead, I use a super fudge brownie recipe I love and my classic blondie recipe. It’s only slightly more work and so much more flavor. And more reason to brag about your baking prowess when you bring these out to share. If you have any left to share.

If you really and truly want to make these slutty brownies even more sinful, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream (and hot fudge, and whipped cream- I mean, in for a penny, in for a pound). Enjoy!



Ingredients:
Brownies:
12 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs and 1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup flour
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Oreos
1 package double stuffed Oreos

Cookie Dough Layer
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cup flour
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Method: 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom and sides of a 9 by 9 inch square pan and spray the tinfoil with Baker’s Joy. Set aside.

Brownies:
In a small bowl, add the butter and chocolate. Microwave in short bursts of 20 seconds until the butter and chocolate is melted.

Meanwhile, combine the sugars, cocoa powder, salt, eggs and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Pour in the melted butter and chocolate and mix until fully combine. Add the flour and mix until just combined. Fold in the white chocolate chips. Spread this mixture into you pan with a spatula.

Cookie dough:
Cream together the butter and sugars with a hand held electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat well. Add the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and mix until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Assembly:
Press the cookie dough into the bottom on the pan, making an even layer.

Place as many oreos on top that will fit in a single layer. Feel free to cut the oreos in half to make them fit.


Spread the brownie batter over with a spatula. Bake in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes until the center is set. Allow the brownies to cool completely before removing from the pan and slicing. Then serve up and enjoy!

Raspberry Pomegranate Jam

Tis the season to be making homemade gifts! Pomegranates are in season and their juice is a festive deep ruby red color. I knew I had to make them into a jam to give away. Straight pomegranate flavor is a little tart for me; I added raspberries for the texture of their seeds and their sweetness. This is a very simple recipe to make and will yield 6 to 7 8 ounces jars of jam or 12 to 14 4 ounce jars, if you like to give away sample sizes during the holidays. Enjoy! Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups pomegranate juice 1 cup mashed raspberries 7 cups sugar 1 tablespoon butter 1 1/75 ounce package Sure Jell Method: Sterilize your jars and lids. Set aside. In a heavy bottomed large stock pot, add the pomegranate juice, raspberries and butter. Mix well. Add in the sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil then stir in the Sure Jell. Allow to boil hard for 1 minutes. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam. Ladle into the sterile jars, twist on the lids and pr

Peek-a-boo Squares

My grandma, Mimi, taught me this recipe. I used to make this with her and my mother as a child. It is my very favorite dessert. It is incredibly easy to make, and even easier to eat. My favorite part of making this as a child was dusting every bar generously with snowy white powdered sugar.  My favorite version of this dessert uses canned blueberry pie filling; I vastly prefer Libby brand over the store brand. You can make blueberry pie filling from scratch with sugar, cornstarch, bleberries, etc. but using the canned stuff is easy in a pinch and is much for nostalgic for me. Plus, I don’t notice a vast improvement over my homemade blueberry pie filling and the Libby brand; it just takes me longer to put this dessert together.  I have been known to whip up a pan of these Friday night and have them disappear by Saturday afternoon. Be warned, these things are addictive! Ingredients: 3 cups of all-purpose flour 2 cups of granulated sugar 4 eggs 2 sticks of

Copycat Star Crunch

I really love Little Debbie snacks but I very rarely have them. I don’t like eating things that are full of unpronounceable ingredients and preservatives. Plus, I greatly prefer to make things myself. My favorites have to be Oatmeal Creme Pies and Star Crunch. I am still looking for a perfect Oatmeal Creme Pie copycat recipe, but this recipe for Star Crunch is absolutely perfect. These cookies are a fantastic combination of caramel, chocolate, and crunchy crisped rice cereal. They keep in a sealed container for a week, or in the fridge for a month. Next time you crave  Little Debbie Star Crunch, try your hand at making your own! Ingredients: Recipe Credit: Adapted from Stella Parks 1/2 cup water 1 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon vanilla paste 3 ounces of milk chocolate chips (use a chocolate for baking; some versions of “eating” chocolate contain too much fat. When your combine this chocolate and the caramel together, the
