how to make brownie cookies
Here are the ingredients and tools you'll need to make cookie brownies.
UNSWEETENED COCOA POWDER
For this recipe, choose unsweetened cocoa powder, like the Hershey’s Brand. (As opposed to Dutch-processed cocoa powder.)
You’ll need some good old-fashioned granulated sugar.
LIGHT OR DARK BROWN SUGAR
Be sure to pack brown sugar into the measuring cup with the back of your spoon!
While the standard is to use unsalted butter when baking, I personally prefer salted. I feel it gives an extra depth to the cookies.
I use the Land O’ Lakes brand.
This recipe calls for melted butter. You may melt on the stove top, or melt for 30 seconds at 50% power in the microwave. Add additional time as needed.
You’ll need three tablespoons of vegetable oil. This type of oil is great for baking because the taste is so mild. You may also use canola oil, which is a type of vegetable oil.
Choose a large egg for this brownie cookie recipe.
I prefer and suggest pure vanilla extract, not imitation flavoring.
All-purpose flour is used in this recipe.
Baking powder will help your cookies rise.
Never forget your salt in cookies! You will notice. Salt keeps away the bland.
SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS
For extra chocolatey goodness, we'll mix in some chocolate chips.
Tools you’ll need
For even baking, I prefer to use a scoop to portion out cookies. Here, I used a small, 1-tablespoon scoop. You may use a 2-tablespoon scoop for bigger cookies, although you may need additional baking time.
how long do brownie cookies last?
Store in an air-tight container for 4 to 5 days.
Can I freeze brownie cookies?
Let the cookies cool completely. Place in a single layer in a freezer Ziplock and freeze for up to 3 months.
TIPS to make brownie cookies
- Place about 12 cookies on each tray. You'll need 3 trays total.
- Bake one tray at a time. If possible keep remaining trays in refrigerator while waiting for the oven.
- Do not overbake! Set the timer for a couple minutes before the recipe suggestion to check on your cookies.
- When done, edges are set and the tops start to crack.
- We suggest using a digital scale to measure ingredients and an oven thermometer to assure the oven is at the right temperature.
