Brownie Cookies

Is is a brownie, or a cookie? A brookie? A crownie? I guess it doesn’t really matter what you call them, but you know if you’re going to combine brownies and cookies you’re going to come up with a winner. They are rich and chewy like brownies, but in the shape and form of a cookie. You even get that wonderful flaky top just like traditional brownies. They can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes, which is perfect for those late night chocolate cravings. So grab yourself a tall glass of milk, and see if you can stop yourself from eating the whole batch!

Brownie Cookies
Yields: About 4 dozen cookies

½ cup butter
4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 cups (18 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
1 ½ cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Combine the butter, unsweetened chocolate, and 1½ cups of chocolate chips in a large heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter and chocolate melt; let cool.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl, set aside.

Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at medium speed with an electric mixer. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, beating well. Then add the chocolate mixture and beat well. Stir in the remaining 1 ½ cups chocolate chips.

Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat, and use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto baking sheets 1 inch apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool slightly on baking sheets the transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

    These sound dangerous. I usually can limit myself to one brownie, but cookies are another ballgame. I guess I’d have to convince myself it was a brownie to keep from eating the whole batch.

  2. I made something similar to these, and they were amazing!!! So chocolate and tasty!

    Jenna is right…these sound super dangerous! No way I could limit myself to one brookie, unless you have no milk around then maybe TWO at the most. 🙂
