You want to know my least favorite line when reading through a recipe? “Let cool completely before cutting.” What kind of ridiculousness is that?! They’re brownies, for heaven’s sake! Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies! It took every ounce of self-control just to get the pan with the batter into the oven. And now I am supposed to wait until they are completely cooled? I’m not Super Woman.
Chocolate batter. Crimeny.
Peanut Butter filling. Just a taste, please?
Swirling… (licking the knife is acceptable, right?)
oh-so-close to just digging into this with a spoon…
Finally… out of the oven!
Directions tell me I have to wait to cut them until cooled. I usually like following the rules. I like the order, organization, and calm that results from following rules.
But this rule is dumb.
And now I need some milk!
