The Ultimate Brownie
I lost my favorite recipe for brownies and I've been searching for a replacement ever since. This is the closest thing I've found. I'm a fan of fudgey, gooey brownies (if I want cake, I'll make a Devil's Food, not brownies). Like many folks, I tweaked this recipe. *6 eggs instead of 7. Next time I'll try 5 as these were still a tad cakey. *I added 2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate to the butter when I melted it. I thought it was wrong to make brownies only using cocoa powder. Initially, I eliminated 1/4 c. of the cocoa powder, but then I added it anyway. The brownies were decadently rich...although, in my mind, the words "chocolate" and "overkill" are mutually exclusive. * I used a 9x13 pan, made a sleeve of aluminum foil, and put the pan in an ice bath immediately after I removed it from the oven (you could also pop it in the freezer, but my freezer was full). The brownies slowly sunk, making them much more dense than they would normally have been. The ice bath also gives you that nice sheen on the top of the brownies. The aluminum foil peeled off the brownies quite easily, without any oil or spray. All in all, I liked it. I'll probably still tinker with it a bit, but it's a great start!

ABC (Absolute Best Chewy) Chocolate Chippers
I'm a fan of thin and crispy cookies, which is the only reason why I didn't give this recipe 5 stars. I tried it out for a friend who craved big chewy chocolate chip cookies and he freaked. I've been making them ever since. A few tricks I've learned with this recipe: *use an ice cream scoop to dump the dough onto the sheet. The cookies are enormous, but they definitely retain their chewiness and moist texture(use the baking time listed in the recipe). The ice cream scoop yields 3-4" wide cookies that are at least 3/4" thick. *to avoid the salt chunks that can happen with kosher salt, I let my KitchenAid have at the dough (before adding the chips) for a good long time. I find that I can taste the salt chunks when I rush this step. *I add 2 tsp. or so of cocoa powder or even cinnamon to the flour mixture. It gives the dough a little kick and helps it stand up to the chips. *if you're out of half and half, I've used regular milk and it works fine as a substitute.
