The next round of goodies for my Week of Holiday Treats are Brownie Cookies from Tasty Kitchen. I actually made these cookies way back in October to take to work for my hubby's birthday. Apparently one co-worker told him that these were the best cookies she's ever had. These cookies in brownie form are pretty yummy - soft in the middle and a little crispy on the outsides. They are a fun variation to the typical chocolate cookie.
From MelodySoul on Tasty Kitchen
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a saucepan or in the microwave gently melt butter and chocolate chips until the butter is melted and chocolate begins to melt.
Remove from heat and stir until all the chocolate has melted completely.
In a separate bowl beat together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla until throughly combined. Add the melted chocolate mixture and stir in the remaining ingredients.
Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour or until manageable. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon or mini ice cream scooper drop cookie dough onto baking sheets, leaving a couple of inches between each cookie.
Bake for 12 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool on the tray for about one hour before transferring to a plate or wire rack to cool.
