Michelle's bake off

Today I was in the mood for something sweet, which is nothing new. That pushed me to bake. Something I haven't done much of in a while. On the few recent occasions that I have baked I usually make yummy ginger cookies, because I want to use up my crystallized ginger. But today I couldn't find that particular magazine, which has the recipe in it. Due to picture appeal and the ingredients I had on hand, I opted for these White Chip Brownies:

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs2 cups white chips, divided


Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. In large mixer, beat sugar, butter and vanilla until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in one and a half cups of the white chips/morsels. Pour into greased 9" square baking dish. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky. Cool completely in pan. Melt the remaining chips and drizzle on top (I used the ziploc bag method).

It's a keeper. Not only is it delish, but its also heavy. A good combo in my book.

Verse for thought:''Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?" Matthew 6:25

Michelle! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I do remember you and visit your blog every so often to catch up on the Moses family! (Eek! I've been found out! I'm a lurker!! :-) It's neat to see your family grow!

Interesting fact: I had just come to the Overland Park Chapel when you and Enoch were getting married. I helped Karen Carder make corn and twice baked potatoes (and there were a LOT of those potatoes!) for your engagement dinner (? at least I THINK it was an engagement dinner!) at the chapel! It was a lot of work and sooo much fun!
