Thanks Elsie, but I had already found a recipe for cookie butter and will try it soon.  I figure it's because we don't eat out much and don't eat commercially prepared foods that we are still alive and kicking...:P

We don’t eat a lot of commercial foods, either - I just don’t think the extra stuff in it is good for my guys ... I do make the odd exception for some things (like cookie butter - Peanut Butter- chocolate chips - yogurt - some things like that. Personally, I don’t think the odd exceptions i make here and there is going to kill them - ymmv.

 Butter tart squares. They’re really dark but they’re not burnt at all.

Sebastian’s brownies (made with mostly black cocoa)

 

 I’m not sure I would ever attempt these again — at least not without cutting the recipe in half.  

 

 In consistency the batter stood about halfway between Mississippi mud and magma. Getting it out of the bowl  and into the pan took every ounce of strength I had. The instructions said to smooth the top. I was wishing I had access to some earth-moving equipment for this task.

 

 But they are chocolate. They are brownies. Everyone will love them.

Lol, I get this  nutty image of you in a little mini road grader gliding across the pan of brownies smoothing out the ripples as you go.  You may need an end loader to lift them out of the pan too.  Your kitchen has become a construction zone, hardhats required!  But they look amazing and I would bring a jack hammer if needed.

 Not the most attractive chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made.  My Thomas Keller alter ego  must have been in hiding. 

 I will be sure to let you know how many are rejected and sent home.

 Inspired by @patris‘s oatmeal cookies and as an attempt to tease a group that I have spent some time with recently, I present today’s offering.

 

I will divide them between those that go to the meeting people and that was that go  to a potluck that is marking the end of a rehab session. The participants in the rehab session seem to be all oatmeal-for-breakfast obsessed. In its natural state I am not a fan of oatmeal so here I will present them with breakfast – –  no bowl to wash!

 

Oatmeal with dried fruit (raisins and cherries) and honey.

 This one with the lacy edges had my name written all over it.

 Can we make it a bit earlier? I’m usually in bed around 8:30.

I'm not usually a fan of oatmeal or oatmeal cookies, but I'd make an exception for those, Anna...even without fighting for the one with the lacy edges!

Paul Young's classic fudgy  brownies.  This is the third batch I have made in the last two days. One batch will go for the meeting people, one batch was made with gluten-free baking mix and will go to my daughter and one batch will go to the rehab group. 

 

 I was out of Lyles Golden Syrup so used honey for the first two batches. I don’t recommend it. They ended up very dense and very sticky. The last batch I made with maple syrup and I’m much happier with them. Once again we will see how many get returned as unsatisfactory.
