I've never made this recipe, but I wanted to offer a tip for cutting the brownie horizontally. Use a piece of dental floss or thread; a few inches longer than the diameter of the brownie. Hold it level by wrapping around at a certain point on pointer finger of each hand as a guide. Saw through brownie.




I was looking for something new tonight and this was just want I wanted, since strawberries are in season right now. I wound up using 2 cake pans instead of one so that I avoided having to cut it in half (this also cut the baking time down to about 25-30 min). Also, after cutting the strawberries, I added a little bit of sugar to them in order to contrast it with the sour cream topping. Overall, it was a great mixture of flavors that balanced each other out really well, and most important, everyone loved it. Next time, I think I'll reduce some of the sour cream since its such a strong flavor and increase the cool whip, which also lowers the fat and calories as well. Great new recipe to add to my collection!




This is a great recipe - and presents very well! One bit of advice... Don't forget the sour cream in the brownie batter. My sister and I both made this for Easter and I made it first and forgot but was able to warn her - the batter fluffs up a lot more with the sour cream!! Still tastes great though :)
