Cherry Pie Brownies & Tumaro’s NY Style Deli Wraps Winner

Hey guys. Happy Friday Open-mouthed smile 

Thanks for all the support in my last post. Ya’ll know how to make a girl blush! Embarrassed smile Seriously though, you guys are all so great and your comments either had me smiling and nodding or busting up laughing!

Sorry I skipped out on you last night, but I was a productivity machine!! Let’s just say that I got a bulk of my Christmas shopping – and played elf for some other people’s Christmas shopping – done last night.

I may not have gotten home until 8, but it was time well spent. But we’re not here to talk about my to-do list. I’ll spare you.

Instead, let me share with you what I brought into the office yesterday and what my coworkers gobbled up:


Cherry pie brownies anyone? They’re good, I promise!

And they better be, because I slaved over this recipe for hours Wednesday night, darnit!!!

Just kidding. I used 4 ingredients for these brownies and it only took about 38 minutes from start to sweet, sweet finish.


Cherry Pie Brownies

The cherry filling incorporated into the brownies makes for the fudgiest brownies ever. I’m a huge fan of chocolate and cherries together, and the cherries in this dish complimented the chocolate perfectly. They didn’t take away from the chocolatey taste, but just added a little bit of cherry tang.

You’ll see I used oil in this recipe. I typically like to bake with butter, but for some reason I find using oil in brownies instead gives me the texture I’m looking for.

1 box brownie mix
1 can cherry pie filling
2 eggs
¼ c. oil
½ c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix everything together and pour into a greased brownie pan. Bake for 32-38 minutes (mine took about 36 mins.)


Luckily my coworkers loved these as much as I did, so I didn’t have to bring any back home with me. I don’t know about you, but a bulk of my plans includes baking Christmas cookies this weekend! Gotta balance out those baked goods somehow Winking smile

disclaimer: I received both the brownie mix and the cherry pie filling for free through the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program and Duncan Hines. My opinions are my own.

Speaking of cookie baking, here are the ones I have on radar for baking tomorrow:

I’m sure some others will make their way in, too.

You can also find all these recipes on my “Christmas Cookies 2011” pinboard. There’s a board for everything! Smile

You know I’ll let you know how it goes!


And now for the winner of the Tumaro’s New York Deli Style Wraps Giveaway…………………

#51 – Virginia!

Congrats, Virginia :)  – send me your info (mailing address) and I’ll pass it along to Danielle so she can ship out the goods.

HAPPY FRIDAY! Open-mouthed smile Hope it’s a good one, loves!

My plan is to wrap a few Christmas presents since I don’t have to be at work until mid morning today. And I’m waiting on my workout because I have to head to the gym here in a while anyway to work a bit. Might as well kill two birds with one stone.

Cookies or brownies? That’s a TOUGH one for me, but I think it’s ultimately cookies.

  1. I think I would LOVE those brownies. Chocolate + cherry is one of my absolute fave combinations! It’s so dependent on the cookie, but I think I’d have to say cookie over brownie. Just barely.

  2. You’re a baking fiend! Can’t wait to see all the goodies!

  3. Cookies!!! Have fun baking :)

  4. cherry pie brownies?!? i think i have everything to make these. this could be trouble :)

  5. Virginia Chowdary says:

    I’m a WINNER!!! Thanks! Just called my husband to let him know, he’s excited! I jokingly told him I won a life time supply of tortillas and he cant wait to hug me…lol. I will be emailing my details to you. Can’t wait to try them! :)

  6. oh jeez – cookies or brownies? that is such a tough question for me considering i’d rank both of them in my top favorite desserts. i think a good brownie probably wins though – i’m such a sucker for a chocolately rich brownie!

  7. Those brownies look fantastic! And what a great way to incorporate the filling. Yum! Lucky co-workers.

  8. cookies or brownies?? If either has frosting…that’s the winner. Otherwise, brownies. They usually have more goodies in them. 😉

    Happy Friday to you too, my friend!

  9. Cookies. Hands down!

    I’ve got a few recipes on my radar for next week. Nothing like bribing friends to let me stay with them on my road trip home other than christmas cake balls… :)

    • Um, cake balls? Hey, you know, if you happen to take a pitstop in Normal, our home is your home, Amy! Just saying’ 😉

  10. oh my gosh! I love the idea of these brownies!!!!!!!! Easy and totally delicious!

  11. Wow you’re a baking machine!!! Everything sounds so good!

  12. Those Rolo Turtles are amazing!! Send some this way!

  13. They look so yummy-I just might have to make those brownies because I received the same coupons from Duncan Hines. I couldn’t find cherry pie filling in the store today though. Thanks for the idea as this will be a different dessert I can serve when my in-laws come over on Christmas day.

  14. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to
    see a nice blog like this one nowadays.
