I’m fairly certain that I have never made a brookie.
I’ve heard of them before, sure. But for some reason, last week when I was trying to think of some kind of chocolate dessert I could make for the blog that was Valentine’s Day-ish, the thought of a layered dessert led to a brownie, led to a cookie, led to a brookie.
I have a history of grand layered dessert ideas failing me. Orange slices on cakes tend to get swallowed from view when baked. And fillings or layers? Let’s just say they are a lot like socks in the dryer. They exist when I place the pan in the oven only to mysteriously disappear when the timer buzzes.
So needless to say, I wasn’t quite sure how these would turn out.
