I’m so excited to share this glorious treat with you today. Not only because it consists of brownie-cookies with salted caramel buttercream sandwiched together all whoopie-pie-like, but also because I made these for a very special blog-friend’s “Virtual” baby shower! Krissy from Krissy’s Creations is having a baby boy any day now, and though she lives too far away for an actual celebration, a few of her friends and I wanted to throw her a little “party” to celebrate the soon arrival of Baby.
I met Krissy last fall at the Foodbuzz Festival, and given that it was the day after I got engaged, and she was one of the first people I saw after it happened, I’ll always have special memories of that weekend. We both share a love for baking and I’ve loved getting to know Krissy over the last year.
In my following of Krissy’s blog, it’s become a known fact that the girl loves chocolate. Her husband Steve is more of a vanilla guy, but I know that Krissy loves anything chocolate- especially fudgy-gooey brownie. When I saw this recipe- I thought it would be perfect for her shower. Two, thick brownie-esque cookies and salty caramel filling is right up Krissy’s alley. (and mine. I ate about 5 of these.)
I was a bit skeptical of this recipe after seeing the dough. It looks more like brownie batter than cookie dough, but after baking- it turned into the most crackly, fudgy confection ever. I can’t wait to experiment with this cookie. The possibilities for fillings and mix-ins are endless!
A party isn’t a party with brownie pies alone, so check out the other lovely ladies and their creations below. Congrats Krissy and Steve!
