Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies
Awesome brownie!!! I added 1 tsp of instant espresso powder to flour mixture and used 60% cacao chips (personal preference to use dark chocolate) but otherwise didn't change a thing. Fudgey and great chocolate flavor! Baked in a metal pan for minimum time. Not sure how some are getting a dry brownie.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies II
I have been using this recipe for years (with the exception of the coconut extract and nuts). We all love this cookie. (4 stars as written, 5 stars my version) My recipe does call for 2 cups of chocolate chips. I like the additional amount of chocolate. Mini chips, regular size semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips all work well. These cookies also good to freeze.

Apple Squares
I am giving this 4 stars for the exact recipe but 5 after the minor changes I made. For the original recipe pan size, I increased the apples to 1 cup, reduced the white & brown sugars to 1/4 cup each and added 1/2 cup sour cream. For the topping I used: 1/4 brown sugar, 1 TBS butter, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional). Cut the cold butter into the sugar & cinnamon then add the nuts. Add topping then bake. You won't have the problem of sugar falling off the top of the squares with this method. I tried one person's suggestion of a powdered sugar glaze & that was a hit. Next time I will try a butterscotch/caramel glaze. However, these apple squares are wonderful without the additional glazes...just a way to make the recipe a little different.
