Holiday Cookie Contest 2013

Project Description

Share a little about the ingredients and techniques used to create this dish/item. RED VELVET BROWNIES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING. The first time I had a piece of red velvet cake was when I visited my great grandmother’s older sister Bess. I think I must have been about six years old, and it was one of those life changing moments where you still can remember the light in the room, and the flavor of that same piece of cake. I thought it was the most awesome cake I had ever tasted! Not only was it a really cool color, but it had amazing frosting that I later came to find out contained cream cheese. Many years went by before I tasted this amazing combination again, and now it is extremely popular. Red Velvet has come full circle. When I came across a recipe for Red Velvet Brownies, I set out to recreate it for my gluten free family, and this is my result. I hope you enjoy my version. I made my brownies in an 8″ X 8″ pan, making them very thick and more cake-like, but you can also make this recipe in a 13″ X 9″ pan and they will be much thinner and more “cookie-like”. If you choose the larger pan, reduce the cooking time to 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Either way, they are a very moist, dense, flavorful brownie that everyone will love. I have substituted gluten free all purpose flour with xanthan gum for the regular wheat flour, and only use the highest quality ingredients. What are you most proud of? Creating a wonderful classic taste in a gluten free brownie that everyone will love. The recipe is available on my blog: Gluten Free Living by Pepperchick http://glutenfreepepperchick.com/2013/12/05/red-velvet-brownies-gluten-free-with-cream-cheese-frosting-the-5th-day-of-christmas-cookies/ What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always purchase the best and highest quality ingredients possible for the best results.
