- Reduce baking temperature by 25°F, if using dark or nonstick baking pan.

Made three types of cookies for work, and these were the only ones with leftovers at the end of the day. They're not bad, but they are kind of boring, and cake-y brownies don't seem to be a hit with my colleagues.

I have a problem with this recipe. I baked it according to instructions and it came out so crumbly it was rediculous. More wet than cakey. Boooo! The best it is good for is crumbling atop ice cream.
