Chocolate-Cherry Brownies

Brownies, dark chocolate, dried cherries what's not to like?  Our baking assignment this week on Tuesdays with Dorie, chocolate-cherry brownies from Baking Chez Moi page 322.

I cooked my brownies the recommended time and went with the "uniformly dull" top as my done point. Completely cooled I was able to cut them into serving sizes without any difficulties except a stray cherry here and there.  The parchment sleeve was essential in getting the brownies out of the pan, it worked like a charm.

We opted not to cut them in le petite sizes but Americano style with ice cream.  My husband and I loved these.  My 11 year old son is a purest and would have preferred no cherries.  These were moist and chocolaty with a depth of flavor.

Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan.  To see what others did in this group go here.

  1. Serving a generous amount of these brownies with a big scoop of ice cream is a super delicious idea! I wanted to serve it with ice cream, but there are none in my freezer! Maybe, next time. Looks yummy!

  8. Yum! These look great although I think I land on the brownie purist side of things.

  9. I love that you cut them Americano style! They were so good I would have had no problem eating a larger serve.

  11. I thought the recommended size sounded so small. Being they are so rich, they did not need to be cut very large - though I would easily devour your Americano size with no problem! Especially with ice cream!

  12. My family wanted big brownies, too! I left cherries out of most of them and they were well loved :)
