Orange & Pecan Brownies

Orange & Pecan Brownies

Are you addicted to chocolate as I am? I don’t bake as much chocolate things as I’d love for a very simple reason: I eat everything so fast I don’t even have time for a photo 😊 But I can’t stay away from chocolate all the time, specially at this time of the year.
Orange & Pecan Brownies
Christmas month was meant to be spent around chocolate. I’m sure about it. I decided to bake some brownies, that taste heavenly and look like a cute little cookie. I baked the brownies in a bigger baking tray than I would normally do so that they would come out a lot thinner allowing me to use a cookie cutter to shape these babies. All in the name of Christmas.
Let’s get to it!
Happy Cooking!

I used a star cookie cutter you can use whatever you like best or just go the old-fashioned brownie way and give them a square shape using a knife.
Bon appétit!
