Sometimes, I make chocolate chip cookies. I use the recipe straight off of the back of a bag of Chocolate chips. Thing is, though, I brew tea using dried thyme leaves, and use the tea, rather then using ordinary water. I got the idea after reading Italian cookie recipes involving herbs. Personally, I think it makes the dough taste much more savory.
Also, when I make brownies, I substitute Grand Mariner for water. Gives it so much more of a rich flavor.
Note: This only works with Fudge-like brownies. Trying to make cake-like brownies is like trying to empty the ocean with a thimble.
Anyone else want to share idea for unique “recipes”?
