Brownie cookies.

I was at a birthday party once and someone had made cookies out of brownie batter. They were delicious! How do you do this? Have any of you tried it? Do I just not add as much water, so the batter is a little thicker?

  • can't we just modify brownie box mix? I'm not doing all that work from scratch. I'm not much of a Betty Crocker type of person.

  • wha you'll need:
    2/3 cup shortening
    1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
    1 tablespoon water
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup baking cocoa
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans(if you want)

    in a large mixing bowl, combine cream shortening, sugar, water and vanilla.
    beat in eggs. combine flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and beat just until blended.
    stir in chocolate chips and nuts if desired.
    drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
    bake at 375 degrees F for 7-9 minutes; do not overbake.
    cool 2 minutes before removing to wire racks.

  • To admckenzie: OMG, you call that work!? Cookies are the easiest thing in the world to make from scratch and don't take much time at all - dump the wet ingredients in one bowl & mix, and the dry into another bowl & mix, then add the dry to the wet & mix....What could possibly be easier? *rolls eyes*

    Guess you really don't want those cookies, huh?
