December 8 is (was) National Brownie Day!
Please accept my apology for this late post, but I went home this weekend for “Thanksgiving.” On actual Thanksgiving, I was in Baltimore at a Friendsgiving and my parents, bro, and SIL were in NYC with SIL’s family.
So I was busy this weekend. We got our Christmas tree and decorated it. I also made a very special soup for “Thanksgiving” which I hope to get to you soon, and also share with you the hors d’ouerves that I made for Friendsgiving.
But to the brownies! In my quest to make all of the Impossible Pies, I now present to you, Impossible Brownie Pie.
This recipe sounds pretty damn simple. And based on my success with all of the other Impossible Pies, I assumed this, too, would be a winner. So I made this for a dessert party that we had in honor of one of my co-worker’s retirement.
Let’s see how this went down.
It looks deceptively okay there. All of that whipped cream (yeah, I just covered the thing in whipped cream) and hazelnuts cloaked the Impossible Brownie Pie visually, but nothing could mask the weird, chewy, half-baked, lumpy pie that lay beneath.
It was horrible.
And again, this, like the Jack o’ Lantern Salad, went untouched. But I don’t blame the people I work with. I know that I’ve said it before: I always have to decide whether I want to contribute something that people will enjoy, or whether I want to make something for the blog.
Blog. Always. Wins.
Therefore, I continue to subject my co-workers to weird foodstuffs. I am surprised they haven’t yet asked me to stop cooking and just bring cups or napkins.
