Brownie cookies as the name states, is a combination of brownie and cookie. They are also called as Brookies. They have the taste and texture of a brownie, but looks like a cookie. This was another variety in our holiday basket for sharing :). We love homemade cookies. Wanted to make something very chocolatey, and different from Chocolate chip cookies for the holiday treats.. This post has been ready and waiting for a pic for several months now. Every time I make these was not able to take a pic, this time around I had to hide some of the cookies from N & N to take the pics :)..
whole wheat flour 1/2 cup
dark/semi-sweet cocoa powder 1/4 cup (I used Hershey’s semi sweet cocoa)
chocolate chips 1/2 cup
powdered sugar 1/3 cup
softened unsalted butter 1/4 cup
baking powder 1/4 tsp
baking soda 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract/essence 1 tsp
milk 3 tbsp
salt 1/4 tsp
Preheat the oven to 320 degrees F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
In a bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda.
Mix in butter, sugar and salt.
Add half the quantity of chocolate chips, butter, and vanilla.
Note: Remaining half quantity choco chips we will use later.
Mix everything gently in hands till they become crumbly.
Add about 2 tbsps of milk to the crumbly mix and bring everything together to form a smooth dough, add 1 more tbsp, if needed.
Chill the dough in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes so it is easier to make balls out of them.
Note: If you do not wish to chill, you can scoop the dough on the parchment paper and bake directly.
Make even sized small balls and place on the parchment paper/silpad, at least 2 inches apart from each other as they would spread while baking.
Garnish with remaining choco chips.
Bake the brookies for 10 minutes only.
Note:The brookies may look soft and undone, don’t worry once they cool .. they will turn crispy.
Allow them to cool completely.
Transfer the cooled brookies to an airtight container .
