Joy’s awesome brownie cookie

Especially now that Joy the Baker posted a comment on my entry about the Cran-Banana Bread, I’m happily searching through her site for more recipes to try. Here’s a winner called Chocolate Brownie Cookies which she says she got from King Arthur Flour.

So what makes them brownie cookies? Well, they’re very chocolatey. And super soft, like almost too soft to be cookies. And they have that cool shine on top. Usually I associate that shine with brownie mixes (which I do not use), but how can you not love the way the surface of the cookie picks up the light?

I underbaked some of them like the photo above. I warned friends and family about the underbaked cookies because they were almost gooey inside, but everyone seemed to want to try those specifically.

The properly baked ones were awesome too. You can see here they were just a bit lighter and thicker.

A few tweaks… I didn’t have espresso powder, but I’d totally try that next time. I had to throw in some semi-sweet chocolate with the bittersweet because I didn’t have enough. And I added chopped walnuts because, well, I love nuts in my brownies and figured I’d love them in these cookies too. The brownie cookies were a pretty major hit. Thanks, Joy.

  4. I've only tried ATK's Triple Choc Cookies which are a big hit anytime I take them somewhere (even won a blue ribbon at the State Fair). Will have to compare both recipes because the end result is very similar. Thanks for posting (if you have any cookies left, they freeze really well too).
