Brownie Cookies

Chewy on the inside and a beautiful shiny crackle on the top. These brownie cookies have both the texture and taste of brownies.

Why You’ll Love Them

Best of two desserts in one. If you can’t decide between brownies or cookies these are for you. They taste just like brownies but in cookie form!

All done by hand. This recipe is done by hand so no need for mixers or fancy kitchen tools.

Amazing texture. These cookies have the perfect fudgy and chewy texture that you would expect in a brownie.

These cookies are amazing and were a huge hit with everyone. They have all the taste/texture of a brownie in cookie form. This includes that gorgeous shiny crinkle top!

How to Make Brownie Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 F and line two baking pans with parchment paper.

To make these cookies start by melting the chocolate and butter together in the microwave. I like to chop the chocolate into bite size pieces and cube the butter so it will melt faster. Every 20 seconds stop and stir the mixture.

In another bowl whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk brown sugar, white sugar, and eggs for a good 5 minutes. The mixture should be lighter in colour and frothy. You can use a handheld mixer as well or even whisk by hand. Then add in the chocolate mixture and vanilla extract and whisk till combined.

Add the flour mixture and mix with a rubber spatula just until no flour streaks remain.

Scoop 1 & 1/2 tbsp of the dough using a cookie scoop and place on a lined baking sheet. You want to space them at least 2 inches apart because these cookies spread a lot.

Baking for 8-9minutes or until cookies are set on the edges and has a crackle top. They will still look soft in the middle but will stiffen after cooling.

Let cookies fully cool to room temperature on the baking sheets before moving.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scrape with knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more flour than the recipe calls for.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY EGGS TO ROOM TEMPERATURE?

Yes you do. Room temperature ingredients break down easier in the batter. This will give you a fudgier cookies and gives you a shiny crinkle top.

If you forget to take your eggs out of the fridge, no worries! Just run them under warm tap water for a few minutes and this will bring them to room temperature.

HOW TO GET PERFECTLY ROUND COOKIES

As soon as the baked cookies are pulled from the oven place a round cookie cutter (a little bit large than the cookies) around the cookies and gently swirl it around. This will give your cookie a round shape. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a glass or a jar lid.

STORING THE Cookies

Store cookies at room temperature in an airtight container. They keep for 4 days after baking.
