Oh, yeah, they can't be uneven!

When I was raising my kids, I had a rule anytime I baked a cake or made brownies. Whoever ate the last piece had to wash the pan, plate or whatever. That guaranteed that there was always a piece left for me! LOL

I'll take any brownie, any shape, any doneness, any time.

Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and I'll be your best pal forever.


That's an interesting pan K-girl. But it wouldn't be worth the investment for me.
Cutting your brownie from the pan is 1/2 the fun. Sometimes you want big and sometimes you want small. And we can't forget the times we simply must have just 1 more "little" taste.

Plus it would end all the squabbling over who got the bigger piece.

For some reason it just seems wrong to me having them so perfectly sized and shaped.

K-girl, a friend of mine bought that same kind of pan for brownies. All she's used it for so far is mini-meatloaves because they like them that way so much!

I guess you guys are right
It is better to just make brownies up in a pan
and then cut them up how every you like

A made a batch for our Anniversary dessert tonight
and jazzed them up a bit this time.
I made our favorite Hershery's recipe
and sprinkled a 1/2 cup each of
chopped Pecans and Dark Chocolate chips on top (they melted nicely)
once they were cooled
I cut the 7 X 7 inch pan into 16 pieces
(a little smaller than I usually do)
melted some Vanilla Candy Melts
and drizzled the tops
DH was over the Moon, I'm so glad
I plan on sharing some with
Mr & Mrs DF tomorrow

Lol, I never thought a topic like this would get so many replies. I feel unworthy here just thinking about buying store bought brownie mix.

Heh. Don't ask about recipes for boiling water, hard boiled eggs, or ice cubes!

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
