I stopped by Half Price Books yesterday. I can't help it. It's a disease. They had Alice Medrich's Cookies and Brownies. For $5.98. How am I supposed to pass that up? (It's $49.99 on amazon today!)
As soon as I got home, I threw together Rocky Road Bars. I remember loving Rocky Road ice cream as a kid. And the picture in the book made me salivate. But I didn't care for them. The graham cracker crust was too crumbly and they seemed overwhelmingly sweet to me. I sent them all to work with Gary. Those guys will eat anything.
Today I made blondies. These are the bar cookie I had a taste for! They are excellent. Very sweet, yes. But I think it's the tablespoon of rum in them that makes them so good. These are NOT going to work with Gary! Well, maybe one.
