Just tried Chewy Molasses Squares from Everyday Food

Okay. I made them two days ago, and then had to go get more molasses to be sure that they are as good the second time around as the first. They are.

  1. Hmm. Must look this up.

    1. Is this recipe available somewhere online? Or could you paraphrase? I searched the Everyday Food site, and these did not turn up.

      Edit: I found this recipe on food.com. The poster claims it comes from the magazine. Does it sound right? http://www.food.com/recipe/chewy-mola...

      1. I think I saw that...is it the recipe submitted by someone from Duxbury, Mass.? They looked really good...now I'll have to try them.

        1. Yup, that's the recipe, as posted by ChristinaMason. Thanks for finding it; I couldn't find it when I looked. These are delicious; they may even get better as they age!

            What did you do with the 4 leftover yolks? Make a creme anglaise?

          2. Hooray, molasses and NO cinnamon or other spices. Intriguing, on the schedule for this weekend.

              It's funny -- the brain supplies the cinnamon for a minute, but then figures out that there isn't any, and then the molasses flavor really comes blasting through. These are my current favorite baked good, and I'm handing them around to friends and family as well. Plus they aren't very rich -- only 1 teaspoon of butter per square and no egg yolks at all. (I'm making custards and chocolate pot de cremes with the yolks; wouldn't want them to go to waste!) Have fun, buttertart!

                I shall! If you like white chocolate (I know not everybody does, but I love it) try an all-yolk pot de creme with white choc. I made these for Valentine's Day with bits of Turkish candied chestnuts in them...
