Alton Brown’s Trick For Crispier Brownie Crust
The only thing better than exploring a dinner party dessert table is discovering the perfect, gooey on the inside and crispy on top brownie. You can easily replicate this, and with the help of Alton Brown's great tip, you will learn to achieve the perfect textural balance.
According to Brown, the trick is to bake them twice. You can use your favorite brownie recipe but then employ the following technique: Bake for 15 minutes at the temperature assigned to the recipe, then pull the brownies out and let them cool for 15 minutes.
Next, put the pan back into the oven and cook them until an instant read thermometer reads 195 degrees Fahrenheit. For Brown's recipe, this takes about 30 minutes, but you can check them after 20 minutes to gage where you're at.
