A young friend of my husband's called us from the grocery store the other day, asking if he could drop off anything for us. DH asked for eggs. He left us two dozen eggs and didn't want any payment for it. I told him I'd bake him whatever he wanted. 

 

A week later,  I got a text from him that said "brookies - I want brookies".  That was new to me. I'd heard of them, but never had one and had never baked them.  Well, they're packed up and ready for porch pickup today, and they look delicious.  I don't like brownies, but I think I might like these. I'm posting the recipe link, if anyone is interested.

Re: Brookies? A first for me.

Wow nice thank you gift! 
If I were in LA and not in Chicago, I'd gladly drop you off eggs

Re: Brookies? A first for me.

They look absolutely divine!!  I have had a taste for chocolate chip cookies and am terrified to make them as I know I will pig out on them.  But now I want brookies!

@house_cat  These look amazing, I've never heard of them either. When can I drop off the eggs I got you?

I'd say the young man got the best part of that deal.  Those bars are a lot of trouble to make, but they do look delicious.

@house_cat I find brookies at Safeway in the bakery section all the time. Usually packed in small plastic boxes, very tasty!

You're right, they are time consuming to make. You have to make brownie batter and cookie batter.  I was so tired last night after finally getting around to cleaning my house yesterday.  I really wasn't in the mood for a project, but a promise is a promise, so I persevered.

I have seen them at Safeway, which is Von's here, but I wasn't tempted to buy them.  I have to admit, though, that they smell delightful.

Re: Brookies? A first for me.

@house_cat .....well you are one step ahead of me.  I never heard of brookies.  From the picture they look like a brownie.

 

That was so nice of you to bake them for your hubbys friend.

Dear God
Grant me the wisdom to know when to keep my mouth shut.
Thank You Amen
