Pretty photos, but I have only tried one recipe so far: Biscuit Brownies. Being an experienced baker I had my doubts about the ratios (WAY too much flour for it to be fudgy! And the butter amount was so little, it couldn't have possibly made up for the huge amount of flour)- but being also curious I decided to give it a try. It didn't crack as mentioned, and it was unbelievably dry even when under baked. Instead of throwing the rest of the dough away.. I decided to use it in a creative way: In a baking tray, I smoothed out some of the dough, and then put a layer of chocolate hazelnut spread, and then topped with the rest of the dough and spread it around, topped it with lots of sliced almonds. Baked it for 15-20 minutes..and WOW. It had a firm base but a gooey and delicious top. It was definitely amazing. But it was horrible as a cookie.
I am not sure I want to try out another recipe as I am not a huge fan of wasting ingredients over experiments. I already have a lot of trust-worthy resources.
