Half brownie, half cookie? I'm in. Now I legit made this and didn't take credit for the Mrs baking as I sometimes do and there is even video evidence to prove it. As the video shows I baked this little darling in the Kamado Joe Classic 3 with some pecan pellets channelling smoke through the slow roller and let me tell you it was a taste unlike any I had had before. I couldn't decide whether it was smokey barbecue or sweet biscuits which was entertaining my mouth the mouth but altogether it was a delight. You can of course swap out the cast iron pan for a spring foam tin and use the oven preheated to 180C instead of the grill. It will still be just as delicious.
