shells, I hope you make those brownies with Bakechef's recipe. Or any from-scratch recipe. So much better than any box mix!

That's a good idea!

My husband hates the crust and cuts it off every slice of pizza. I grab them up before he throws them away. I love the crust more than the pizza. He also cuts the crust off his french toast and I eat them too. He is eternally 5 years old.

For years I cut brownies the regular way - a piece off as you needed it. One day one of our kids asked if they could have the corner piece because they liked the crusty part. That's when I started to cut brownies so I could have all the inside pieces and everyone else got edges. Same goes for pizza around here. So are you an edge person or a middle person?
Never had any luck with brownies they are always too cake-like all through and not squidgy in the middle when I use recipes in British books. Might have a go at IG's "Outrageous Brownies" recipe.

I like the ooey gooey centre brownies! So, CG you are not alone. But my recipe, which has taken me years to perfect, doesn't ever get to crispy and hard on the edges - perfection!

SO trims the edge off the entire pan and we eat them first. Then the rest are all center cut.

I guess if you want the ultimate crusty brownies, just bake them in the bottoms of muffin tins.

As to pizza crust, I eat from the point up to the crust and leave the crust for either SO or the disposal.

I had a couple pkgs of brownie mix in the house for my grandson, but now he's on a gluten-free diet and cannot eat them so I made 1 pkg last night. I only have a glass pan so I used that and lowered the temperature and they turned out great! But I will still be trying out BakeChef's recipe once the other brownie mix is gone!

It's recommended to lower the temperature by 25F, when baking in a glass pan.

Brownies ~ edges or middle? I'm beginning to think that I am the only person in the world who does not like the edges of brownies. :ohmy: Shocking, I know! Do you fight off others so you can have the edges or the corners? Or do you cut your piece an inch in from the edge of the pan? For years I cut brownies the regular way - a piece off as you needed it. One day one of our kids asked if they could have the corner piece because they liked the crusty part. That's when I started to cut brownies so I could have all the inside pieces and everyone else got edges. Same goes for pizza around here. So are you an edge person or a middle person? 3 stars 1 reviews
