I'm not much of a cookie baker, but I decided to try a new recipe over the weekend. They turned out great!
They are super fudgy and nice, fat little cookies. They will be perfect for a valentine treat so I will definitely want to remember this recipe! They would also be great to pack for lunch treats, for potlucks, and for sharing with a friend.
Here's how I made Chewy Brownie Cookies AT HOME MY WAY:
Chewy Brownie Cookies
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2/3 cup all-vegetable shortening (Crisco or generic)
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 to 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I only used one cup.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
(I used a big wooden spoon and mixed by hand.)
In a mixing bowl, mix the brown sugar and shortening until smooth. Add the water, vanilla, and eggs. Stir well. Add the salt, baking soda. Stir well. Add the cocoa powder and stir again. Add the flour and mix again until all mixed. (It will be thick!) Add the chocolate chips last and stir again.
Place on parchment covered cookie sheet or spray the cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Scoop cookie dough with small spoon and form into a ball. Place balls on parchment covered or sprayed cookie sheet.
Bake for 11-13 minutes or until firm and set.
Let cool about five minutes and remove to a cooling rack.
I scooped the dough with regular "eating spoons" and formed into balls, then placed on the cookie sheet.
