the (baked) goods: butterscotch brownies

You ever watch a soap opera and find yourself feeling envious of that coma chick?  I mean it's kind of like a vacation, right?**  No work, no chores - heck, you don't even have to feed yourself because a tube does it for you!

I'm happy to say that I had your weary bones in mind when I was baking today.  Friend, please prepare yourself for a good old fashioned sugar coma....

I was planning on baking an apple pie until I ran into this sucker on Bakerella.  Obviously it looks slightly worse different - but you bet your butt it tastes the same.

You've got to take it slow here because this monstrosity is kick-you-in-the-head rich.  She's delicious, but not for the faint of heart.  A small piece needs to be cut with at least 10 ounces of cold milk.  You've been warned.

(**Oh my goodness I am so kidding!  A million apologies if you or anyone you know is in a coma.)
