Sometimes it hard to choose between brownies or cookies. I’ve created a combination cookie to make when you have some brownies just lying around that need new life. This cookie is a basic vanilla cookie dough with chunks of brownies added in for rich chunky chocolate flavor.
If you don’t have brownies lying around, you can purchase a couple at the local grocery store. They don’t necessary have to be the best brownies on hand because you are going to add them to a rich buttery cookie batter that will infuse fresh flavor. Give this recipe a try, it is irresistible.
1 1/2 sticks of butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-4 brownies, cut-up (depending upon how chocolaty you want them)
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a stand mixer combine butter and sugars. Mix on medium-high for 4 minutes until creamy.
2. Next, add eggs one at a time until incorporated into the dough. Add the vanilla extract and continue to mix until blended.
3. Add the flour, soda and salt into the dough and mix on medium speed just until combined.
4. Add the chunks of brownies and stir on low until mixed into the dough.
5. Scoop the dough into balls onto a cookie sheet and press down lightly with your palm. Sprinkle the tops of cookies with granulated sugar.
6. Place in the oven to bake for 13-15 minutes until golden brown.
7. Remove the cookies from the oven and cool for 10 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Enjoy!
