Love cookies? Love brownies? Here's a brownie cookie recipe you just got to try. They're soft like brownies, but have the great tooth-feel of cookie since they're kind of hard on the bottom. (Like that I used the phrase tooth-feel? Samesies.) They're chocolatey, they're chewy, they're basically everything you ever wanted in life so just go ahead, enjoy.

- Beat vegetable shortening and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in one egg until completely incorporated. Beat in last egg along with vanilla extract and water. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture at low speed until just blended; fold in chocolate chips.
