McCormick Extracts Take Baking to a New Level

I am one of those "semi-homemade" moms. I love to bake, but I love when I can bake something a little bit different than a store bought brownie, cake or cookie. That's one reason why I always keep McCormick Flavor Extracts in my pantry.

Raspberry Brownies

 Like these, for example. Raspberry Brownies. You make a brownie mix as usual, and before baking add in 4 TSP of McCormick Raspberry Extract. Then, take a store bought jar of chocolate frosting and stir in 2 teaspoons of the same Raspberry Extract. The result is a delicious raspberry brownie, that the whole family will love, and it was almost just as easy as making brownies from a mix.

When my kids come back from the pool (we live in FL, so pretty much every day is a pool day!) they always want a treat, and I always try to have something different. Recently, I decided to try the Orange Kissed Brownies.

To make these, you do the same as the Raspberry Brownies, only with the Orange Extract. I opted out of the frosting, because that's just too sweet for us!


We made ours into Brownie Bites, and they were delicious!

With the huge selection of McCormick Extracts, see if you can come up with something yummy! I am thinking my next recipe will be something like "Coconut Almond Cookies" with sugar cookies, Almond Extract and Coconut Extract.
