Yesterday was National Brownie Day (hooray!) and today I've got a great way to celebrate with this clever gift idea. Simply bake your brownies inside cookie cutters to create a darling individual gift. The recipient can enjoy the brownie right away and re-use the cookie cutter forever. I love this idea for teachers, coworkers, neighbors, and even as a bake sale item. Simply place your cookie cutters on a parchment-lined baking sheet and pour the prepared batter in, about 2/3 full. Bake at 325 degrees until shiny and crackly on top. Allow to cool before removing from the sheet with a spatula.
HINT: Cooking time will be shortened, so keep a close eye on your brownies. Mine baked for 13-15 minutes.
