Origin of the National Brownie Day
Brownies are an all-time favorite pastry. This square or rectangular baked sheet cookies are made up of nuts, frosting, cream cheese, chocolate chips, and other baking ingredients. Thus, there is no doubt that they are very popular delights served on restaurants and coffeehouses, and celebrated every 8th of December.
But how come it is yearly celebrated? It began in the United States at the end of the 19th century. Yet, there are several stories about this cookie and cake crossbreed:
First, a chef accidentally adjoined melted chocolate to biscuit dough. Second, a cook forgot to append flour to the batter. Third, a housewife did not have baking powder as she decided to serve the guests with flattened cakes.
But one particular event marked the most -- 1800s. In this timeframe, there was a dessert request from a group of ladies. They wanted a small cake-like dessert that could be eaten from a boxed lunch. A Chicago chef from the Palmer House Hotel created the first brownie with apricot glaze and walnuts. Since then, it became a hit with various versions and recipes.
