Biscuits & Cookies, Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 17.05.2019

A few weeks ago I was in the mood for something really decadent and thought back to my Chocolate Chip Cookie Oreo Brownies. With a choc-chip cookie layer, Oreo layer and brownie layer, they truly are an indulgent treat! I wanted to create a variation on those, something equally decadent but with a different flavour. Peanut butter cookies are one of my weaknesses, and I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. So that's what led me to make these Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies.

The filling (a simple yet decadent chocolate...

When Little, Brown and Company contacted me a few weeks ago and asked me if I'd like to receive a copy of Maida Heatter's new book - "Happiness is Baking", I must admit I had no idea who she was! But of course, I jumped at the opportunity to add a cookbook to my collection and try some new sweet recipes. After doing a bit of research, I now know that Maida Heatter is an American Pastry Chef who taught the legends - including Martha Stewart! Towards the end of the 1960's she rose to food world fame and has since...
