Brownies & Cookies: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can I store my cookies?
After taking them out of the oven, we recommend cooling them on a wire rack instead of a baking sheet. In contrast to the grid, there is no air circulation under the baking sheet.
Once they have cooled completely, you can store the cookies in an airtight box, such as one made of metal.
How do you form beautiful cookies?
This is quite simple! All you need is a spoon and a baking sheet. You can use either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Take a spoonful of cookie dough. Form small balls of dough. And done! You can also flatten them a little. But the pastry takes on a nice natural shape when baked in the oven.
How should a brownie be baked?
Warning: do not confuse brownies with chocolate fudge! Brownies need to be soft but still baked through. Use the knife tip trick to check doneness: insert the knife tip into the center of your cake. If it comes out clean and dry, the cake is done. However, if dough sticks to the blade, it has to continue baking.
What mold to use for brownies?
We recommend you to use a square or rectangular shape. This makes trimming easier and this shape is also traditionally used.
The brownie cube recipe, on the other hand, requires the use of individual square shapes.
How can I store my brownies?
Place your cakes, whole or in pieces, in an airtight container. Then put them in the fridge to extend their shelf life.
You can also freeze your brownies after placing them in a suitable container.
Which chocolate should I use for my brownies and cookies?
To ensure success, we recommend Valrhona baking chocolate . Whether dark chocolate, milk chocolate, blonde or white chocolate or Inspiration fruit couverture ... you will find the chocolate that suits you on this website.
Valrhona chocolate is easy to measure, melt and work with. That's why we also recommend it for patisserie lovers who want to use the chef's pastry chef's chocolate.
Brownies & Cookies: yesterday and today.
Did you know... History of cookies.
It is believed that these biscuits were invented in the USA in the 1930s. More specifically, by two American chefs: Sue Brides and Ruth Graves Wakefield, owners of the Toll House Inn in Massachusets.
Her recipe has been disseminated through numerous cookbooks. This made cookies the standard cookie recipe in the United States.
The popularity of these biscuits also dates back to World War II. The American soldiers shared the cookies received in their packages from home with soldiers of other nationalities.
Did you know... The History of Brownies
The origin of this very special chocolate cake is not entirely clear.
It is said that the first brownie was made by a chef who forgot to add yeast to her batter. The result was... a flat cake! In the patisserie tradition, of course, people like to invent the odd legend or anecdote.
Other sources indicate that the invention is said to have taken place in Chicago in 1893: a chef at the Palmer House hotel is said to have been the author.
