A friendly reminder that today is a good day to bake brownies — and the other most-viewed recipes from this week.

1. Fudgy Flourless Brownies, above. The chocolate chips sink to the bottom and become a little crispy by the end of baking. We consider this a good thing.

2. Whole-Wheat Jam Thumbprints. If you’re not in the mood for chocolate, then try these jam-dotted, crumbly cookies on for size. They’re made with just six ingredients.

3. Za’atar Chicken With Chickpeas and Yogurt. A one-pan, ready-in-35-minutes, comforting dinner.

4. Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops. The apple cider vinegar and apple cider make these chops perfect for fall.

5. Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup. Corn tortillas, golden raisins, tomato paste and sesame seeds “make all the difference” in this soup, writes Bonnie Benwick in this week’s Dinner in Minutes recipe.
