I was looking for something different. I made brownie bites for Memorial Day, and I guess they were so good that they were all gone before I could get one. I just did a search for ‘cookie blog,’ and found this one called Cookie Madness. I followed the recipe exactly, except for one thing, I used regular chocolate chips instead of white chips, because that’s what I had. For me it took 12 minutes in the oven, and 5 minutes cooling on the pan before I took them off. I was smart this time and ate one before I took them to work with me. These cookies are amazing. I am going to make my coworkers very happy with these.
Chocolate Brownie Cookies
- 2/3 cup butter flavored shortening
- 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line two baking sheets with regular foil or parchment paper. I don’t recommend using spray or grease because it causes the cookies to spread too much.
- With an electric mixer, beat the shortening, brown sugar, water and vanilla until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Stir the flour mixture into the shortening mixture until incorporated. Stir in chips. Drop by heaping tablespoon about 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake on center rack for about 12 to16 minutes or until the cookies appear set.
- Let cool on the baking sheets for about 5 to 10 minutes or until you can scrape them up off the foil without breaking them (less of an issue with parchment). They’re still a little delicate at this point.
