Saving under cooked brownies

I love underbaked brownies also. I have an 8x11 ceramic baking dish. i use one brownies mix boxed, lower the egg to one extra large. Cook on 350 degrees for 38-40 minuites. I like walnuts. Everyone wants some more of them. all around town. lol

Saving under cooked brownies

Ok Treb thanks for responding. here what i've done so far I nukes one in a paper towel for 1;30 seconds. a bit too long as it did taste a little burnt. but i did so because i realized my brownies were a whole 20 minutes under baked. i would not do 1:30 again. Next time i'll listen to you and do 30 secs thanks...
Jay F thanks for your comment but what does "ipsedixit" mean?

Do you eat fortune cookies? Does anyone?

What a terrific idea. That would make a great party. Like instead of a money tree. How about registry gist. Well you get the idea

There is woman i saw two days on tv that has a business of extraordinarily large fortune cookie's. she got so popular they now come with sprinkles or whatever you want.

I love fortune cookies for the taste. They are one of my comfort foods. I don't read the fortunes anymore just alot of cookies. I live in ca there is an asian market every few blocks so easy to come by. Saw a recipe on tv one time never did make them yet but they sounded easy to make with few ingredients.

I Love garlic. I roast whole clusters in the oven and eat them with a toothpick each clove. But i don't like garlic in my mashed potatoes...so everyone with their own taste.

you make good from scratch? Do they ever taste fishy or funny to you? If not what is your recipe?

Scallions and pepper sound great! Red bell peppers are in season now. 33cents apiece. I might try that next time

We visited my father in law and he asked asked me to make scalloped potatoes he loves them. he had the recipe all bookmarked from a cookbook. lol I followed that recipe and to me it tasted a bit on the-how do I say?-a fishy side. I then used an online recipe from an Iron Chef substituting the raw potatoes for boxed. Loved it but with all heavy cream..a bit rich for my vegetarian. So I came up with this fool proof one.

I prefer the taste of boxed potatoes over traditional when cooked this way...I always use two boxes because this recipe is so delicious I eat them all myself in a hurry. Two boxes of scalloped potatoes. In two boxes there is 5 and 1/2 c. liquid mostly water. Instead Use at least half of that liquid in any kind of dairy milk including heavy cream for the richest. Mix all together with the two packets of sauce and butter in large dutch oven cold. Corn starch is better mixed in not too hot liquid......Heat stirring often. Arrange dried potatoes in an 8x12 or larger casserole dish.....add 4 c. of your favorite cheese grated. Swiss, parmesan whatever you have mix and match... I use 2 or more c. white and some Velveeta..add cheese to potatoes...mix....pour hot liquid over potatoes and cheese...add your favorite herb if you like....cook uncovered at 350 for and hour or so. This is the important part ... refrigerate over night! So much better the next day. A crowd pleaser! Working on uploading a pic i took tonight thanks Karen
