These were smashing!!! They were really good! I used only 5 tablespoons of butter (1/2 cup seemed like too much) and half whole-wheat pastry flour in the crust. The crust had a great texture and taste. The brownie part was really gooey and yummy. I put in almost a whole cup of nuts because I wanted to use them up. I loved the nuts in this. Served warm with vanilla ice cream. Oh yeah... I used brown sugar instead of white in the crust; maybe that's what made it so tender and yummy.
Ick. I am usually a very competent baker, so I felt just horrible when these came out all wrong. The shortbread was very tough and the finished brownies were impossible to slice without falling apart. The flavor is just so-so. I feel bad admitting that I think these were kind of a waste of the ingredients that I don't usually keep on hand (used up my walnuts and condensed milk)... I'm almost embarassed to bring them to work, except that I know any treat will be considered a good treat at work. I sent a bunch to work with my husband, too. I will update later if there are positive comments from our co-workers, but overall I do not think I'll even attempt to make these again- don't even care to try and fix whatever went wrong. Sorry.. it was fun to try something new, though!
I consider myself a "dessert lover" and especially a chocolate lover. I also love shortbread. While I think this recipe is a good idea, I don't like the way it tastes. The shortbread crust doesn't have much flavor to it (I would add ground almonds or pecans to it for more flavor and a nutty crunch), and the "brownie" layer really doesn't taste like brownies at all. I think it's the sweetened condensed milk that makes them taste kind of strange. Rather than using that recipe, I would just layer my favorite prepared brownie mix (with chocolate bar pieces and nuts mixed in) over the top of the modified crust and bake it. I think it's a good idea, but this recipe just didn't "hit the spot" for me.
I made this recipe and received rave reviews from the whole neighborhood. I used chopped up Snickers bars in place of the regular chocolate bar and nuts. Absolutely a keeper! Thanks!
AMAZING!! Anyone who gave this recipe a bad review must be doing something wrong. The only things I did different was I used an 8by8 dish and increased the cooking time by 10 minutes on both the crust and the brownie. I also used chocolate chips instead of a chocolate bar. I'll use this recipe over and over again! You have to try it at least once!
Gooey is an understatement. I would call this melted chocolate with shortbread crust. I followed the recipe and baking times exactly, but the top never really set. I let it sit at room temperature for about 7 hours, but it was still really wet when I cut into it. So, I put it in the fridge for several hours. It hardened up so that I could cut it, but it still isn't what I would call a brownie. That being said, it tastes very good. My kids absolutely love it and probably would have eaten the pan had I not stopped them. Don't know if I'll try again or not.
INSANELY good recipe! You can make A LOT easier too, if you simply buy a brownie mix instead of making these brownies. They turned out better when I used Peanut Butter Cup brownie mix and added 1/2 c of peanut butter like somebody else had suggested. A real crowd pleaser!
Now THIS is a brownie recipe! The shortbread crust gives these brownies a fabulous touch. They are very rich, but delicious. I cut my brownies in small squares because it doesn't take much to satisfy a sweet tooth with them.
