This week's pick by Melissa of Life in a Peanut Shell is....Expresso Cheesecake Brownies! Sound overloaded and completely rich??? It is...and then some. I have to say that this sort of brownie is right up my mom's alley. She downs at least one French press of coffee a day and has always had a weakness for cheesecake that leaves me with a stomach ache. I can eat copious amounts of almost any confection...cheesecake being on the limited edition list. So while I enjoyed these, I leave the real yay or nay to my mom, who enjoyed them muchly. We both agreed with other TWD bakers in thinking the brownie a little dry. However, the second day the brownie wasn't as dry, and was a nice, solid base for the cheesecake. Quite a structural piece. I love the marbled top. It seems so promising. I cut one row of brownies while the brownies were still warm, and the cheesecake cut much better - after cooling, they stuck to the knife and I ended up eating an entire brownie top while "cleaning the knife."
