Eggnog Cheesecake Brownies

Did you know that making desserts for real people is stressful?
I mean seriously when I am at home during the week
baking for my internet peeps in my sweats…it is super easy.
I can just make what I want because you really aren’t there eating it
and judging me for all the sugar in my house.
Well you might be judging me, but I don’t know about it:-)
But when I have to make food for people that are living
breathing standing right in front of me, I freeze.
This weekend we were asked to be the dessert stop
for our youth group and their annual progressive dinner.
Should be easy enough…I am like a dessert queen around these parts.
I keep a running list of desserts that I want to try/make,
not a problem. Or so I thought…
The dessert list brought out the crazy neurotic part of me…
I seriously was sweating bullets trying to decide what to make.
And they are just teenagers who will eat anything I throw at them.
Why was it so hard to decide?
I blame it on having way too many options.
Now usually I am super fond of having a lot of options
for me to choose between.

Scrapbook stores…tons of paper to decide between.
Thrift store…tons of old clothes to go through.
Online stamp store…plethora of stamps to choose from.
But give me 25 teenagers and a list of 10 food items
and I shake like a fool!!!
Honestly I couldn’t decide what would be better to make for them.
I finally settled on blonde brownies…jazzed up for the holidays of course:-)
Should be easy…I make these ALL the time.
Finished up the batter and tossed it in the oven.
25 minutes later and it still looked like I could pour it out of the pan!!!
WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON????
I was still so stressed over baking that I totally messed up
and threw an extra stick of butter into the batter.
(Just so you know an extra 1/2 c. of butter will totally throw off your baking)
So that disaster went into the garbage can…
back to square one.
Finally I calmed my nerves enough to make
some fudge, cookies, cheesecake and cake trifles.
Enough of this real life people baking…
take me back to computer screen baking:-)
