I was missing me some brownies. Really missing them. I had gone to the local grocery stores looking for the new Betty Crocker gluten free products they added to their line this summer. Of course I have read reviews of people eating them on the East Coast but not in this area, yet. I have put in a request at my local Roths but I am sure it will be awhile before I see it there. So to pass the time I ordered it off of amazon.com. You have to buy 6 boxes at a time but I knew I would actually eat the 6 boxes at some point.
I finally got around to baking the brownies Saturday night.
They are not the brownies I am used to. . . but I think if I made them you would not know they were gluten free. They are more fudgy then regular brownies and don't have that crust on brownies I kind of like. But they are close enough and I am glad to find a gluten free product that is easy to make! The mix is more expensive then a normal gluten loaded mix so I actually put pieces of my brownie into ziplock baggies and into the freezer and am not sharing them with my family. Then I can take them out as I need a chocolate brownie fix. Or take them with me if I am going somewhere that may not have gluten free desserts.
I am now waiting to try Betty Crocker cake and cookie mixes when they hit a shelf near me. YUMMMMMMM
