I have a felt placemat that has cut-out leaves and I've always loved the design. I thought it would look pretty if I laid it on top of the whole sheet of brownies and dusted it with confectioners sugar to make the pattern. It didn't work quite as well as I'd hoped, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? This incredibly perfect, dense, flavorful-but-not-cloyingly-sweet brownie recipe comes from The Little Black Book of Chocolate and is called La Gourmandise Brownies. I have never heard of La Gourmandise, but in researching it, it looks like possibly a pastry or culinary school of some kind. After tasting these decadent treats, I see why they are in business.
