Show and Tell! Part 3
Ahh...the brownies... These Kahlua Brownies - the picture on the left - are decadent. It's rich in underlining coffee flavor, and the texture lies somewhere between cake and fudge. We're talking about the best of two worlds here. I didn't put any nuts because I don't want to be distracted.
The picture on the right is the Old-Fashioned Icebox Cookie; it is a tribute to my childhood. It's simple, honest, a little nostalgic. When you need a break from all the other flavors, just take a bite of this sugar cookie. A sigh of relief. The recipe is from the old dessert book my mother entrusted to me - we called it 'the Blue Book' - and it tastes the same as I remember.
