For all the ways I talk myself out of making brownies; Not worth it, I don't like them that much, just eat a piece of fruit, this other super sophisticated, impressive-looking dessert sounds so much more exciting - I always come back to my desire to have a good recipe for everything. That way when someone requests a batch of brownies, as they inevitably will, I'll have no problem throwing together the best brownies they've ever eaten. Then I'll serve them directly out of the oven with vanilla ice cream because, if you're going to eat a brownie, you might as well do it right.
Note: If you have trouble cutting them, throw the pan in the freezer until very very cold, this will make it easier to get a clean slice.
Side note: I love that these only make one dirty bowl.
