Brookies (Brownie Cookies)

Recipe by  

"A co-worker couldn't decide on her favorite for her birthday treat, brownies or chocolate chip cookies, so she said I should just pick one. On the way home I thought this up and couldn't find it on Allrecipes so I created it. These go quickly; I usually make a double batch in a jelly roll pan."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Beat softened butter, light brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a large bowl until creamy. Add 1 egg; beat until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture until dough is combined. Stir chocolate chips into dough. Spread dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish to cover completely.
  4. Stir 1 cup white sugar, melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a bowl; add 2 eggs and beat well. Mix cocoa powder into butter mixture until well-combined. Stir 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, and 1/8 teaspoon salt into cocoa mixture until batter is combined. Pour brownie batter over cookie dough and spread to cover completely.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brookies comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

I halved this recipe and baked it in a 9x9 pan, 25 minutes was perfect in my oven. My son took this to a friend's house, I liked that it used pantry ingredients and came together fast. I think I would try a chocolate glaze next time to dress it up a bit.

Very good, yummy recipe. I'm not sure why, but this took about 40 minutes to finish baking rather than the time specified.

It was very good! Delicious and the chocolate lovers in my house loved it! The only thing is the cookie dough is very difficult to spread, and there doesn't seem to be enough of it to cover the bottom in a good layer. As for the cooking time, my oven needed 35 minutes. But it was overall very good and I'll make it again!

EXCELLENT RECIPE! Not overly sweet, either....I've seen some recipes that I know would just be too sweet (seriously, it is a brownie on top of a cookie!) but this recipe has a good balance of sugars. My two "issues:" 1.) the cookie dough layer is VERY DIFFICULT to spread over the bottom of a 13 by 9 inch pan. It's like this recipe needed just a little more "dough." 2.) You seriously have to let this recipe cool maybe even put it in the fridge (I did) before trying to cut it. The bottom cookie layer is definitely softer, so it needs to be cooled completely before cutting otherwise it is a big mess. So...just don't think you can make this and eat it soon after!
