Brownies, maybe with chocolate chip cookies, rank as most loved treat.
I think of Maida as the brownie queen. Maybe because I read in one of her recipe introductions that she always carries cellophane wrapped brownies in her purse to give out as needed. Or perhaps, before I began to bake her brownie recipes, I felt like mine were always lacking.
Now I, too, can be brownie famous. This most basic walnut filled batch helped me to feel that after baking them for a group of visiting friends who absolutely devoured them.
