A pan with only edges?! Yes, it exists! My brother got me this for Christmas - it's called the Baker's Edge pan and only makes bars/brownies that have edges so every piece is cooked evenly. I had to try one of their recipes (if I try one of my own I will have to experiment with cooking times...). Since I didn't have all of the ingredients for their brownies, I tried their cookie bars. They were very crispy (maybe I baked them too long despite the instructions?). I noticed the batter was very thick as well. Still very good - my husband said he liked dipping them in a glass of milk ....after they were gone of course, so I didn't get to try this!

Add the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips or other candy pieces.
