Favorite Brownie Cookies

25 Aug

We love cookies here at LJB!  In fact, we love them so much that we actually have a day named after our beloved cookies.  It’s called “Hot Cookie Monday”!  My kids know that every Monday when they get home from school there will be hot cookies waiting for them.  Since we make them so frequently, we experiment with all sorts of recipes.  This particular recipe is on our “most requested” list.  Try them for yourself and you’ll see why… it’s a brownie and it’s a cookie all rolled into one.  Can you think of anything better?!?!

Brownie Cookies

  • ½ cup butter, cut into small chunks
  • 4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 3 cups (18 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided as described in recipe
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped pecans, toasted

Combine butter, unsweetened chocolate, and 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chips in a large, heavy saucepan.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter and chocolate melt.  Cool.

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

Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at medium with an electric mixer.  Add dry ingredients, beating well.  Add chocolate mixture, remaining chocolate chips and pecans.

Using medium cookie scoop, drop 1 inch apart onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Makes about 2 ½ dozen.

    I came across this recipe the other day while looking for a new cookie recipe. I don’t typically leave reviews but I had to for these because they’re so good. Everyone in my house LOVES them. They’re so rich and perfect. They’ve quickly become a favorite in my family.
