Cookies and brownies

Several of you picked up on how appetising the cookies and brownies looked in a post a couple of weeks ago. Well today I’m feeling generous and I’m going to direct you to the recipes for those beauties. They were so good I made a second batch of both within a day of the first one. I’m not even joking. My running has slowed down dramatically since then. It may or may not be related.

Both recipes are super easy, and it’s all basically about mixing ingredients together, no special potions or anything. And actually, I suggest making both on the same day because as your cookie dough chills in the fridge, you’ve got just the right amount of time to make the brownie. If that’s not a match made in heaven then I don’t know what is.

I’ll let you decide whether it’s worth it.

(Answer: it totally is.)

Recipe for the chocolate shortbread: find it here. The only thing I'd say about this recipe is that the cookies benefit from a brief stay in the fridge before you gobble them down. Even better the next day actually if you can lay your hands off them for that long.

Recipe for the peanut butter and chocolate brownie: find it here. Nothing to change here, it's perfect!

Thanks for sharing. I've never made brownies before and have always wanted to. I will add this to my list of things to make once I get my new kitchen. x
