Now that school is back in session there are so many fun activities going on! One of our favorites is checking out the local fundraising bake sales. For years, cookies and brownies have been two of the most popular bake sale items, and this year, they’ll taste even better with unique flavor tips from the McCormick Kitchens. Gone are the days of the chocolate chip cookie or simple fudge brownie. This year we’re making bake sale treats pop with flavor and variety.
The McCormick Kitchens have developed unique cookie and brownie recipes – including one that combines the two – to make sure your treats are the talk of the table. I was really inspired by the Orange Kissed Brownies Bake Sale recipe and I created my own version with a triple citrus twist.
These decadent brownies combine the best citrus flavors nature has to offer with a little help from McCormick lemon extract and orange extracts. These little bottles produce a big flavor twist in everyday baked goods.
- 1 box family-sized brownie mix
- 1 tablespoon McCormick orange extract
- 1 tub cream cheese frosting
- 2 teaspoons McCormick lemon extract
- orange, lemon & lime zest (optional)
- Prepare brownie mix as directed on package. Stir in orange extract. Spread in greased 13×9-inch baking pan.
- Bake and cool as directed on package.
- Stir lemon extract into tub of cream cheese frosting and spread over cooled brownies.
- Cut into squares and top with zest.
