The weekend before my latest round of stomach distress, we baked cookies. I spent a lot of time that Saturday night & Sunday morning wondering if I even wanted a dessert for the week because I just wasn't feeling good but then Sunday afternoon when SP asked again I thought, well, of course I'll want dessert during the week even if it doesn't interest me right this second. But I wanted something quick and easy, like bar cookies, and something in an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan. Not a huge 9 x 13 pan of something. I did a quick search for bar cookie recipes and found this one from Martha Stewart: Chocolate Caramel Cookie Bars.Upside Down Nectarine Cake with Salted Caramel. It was just an OK cake, not something we really have the desire to make again. We are pretty sure part of the meh-ness is that we didn't cook our caramel long enough. This time we were determined to get a dark amber color.
We'd make these again, probably for a party because even this small of a pan is a bit too much for just the two of us given the fudgy richness.
