TWD Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

I have been so excited to make these brownies! While they were cooling, I could hardly contain myself. I've been wanting a rich chocolaty treat. I read the P&Q's and saw that many people had dry brownie. I was tempted to use my own brownie recipe, but was true to Dorie and used hers. I decreased the temperature to 325, yet I still had dry brownies! I was bummed!
I also chose to fore go the topping, as my sour cream was expired. I thought it was fine to bake with, but was hesitant to put it on top (and I'd already thrown up once for the day! I'm loving this 3rd pregnancy!).

The cheesecake was delicious and creamy, but my brownie was a let down. I would love to make this recipe again using my no fail brownie recipe. I hope others had better luck! To check out the recipe see Life in a Peanut Shell.

That looks awesome. It has two of the best things in the world! :) I'm surprised that I've never tried it. Good luck on your next batch. :)

It is such a cute cake. I didn't used the sour cream topping on two of my three minis and was so glad.

Sorry they were dry. It's such a 50/50 with brownies.
