Unbelievable Brownie Cookie Recipe Is the Best of Both Worlds

Yum! 3

brownie cookiesLove 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.






Chewy Brownie Cookie Recipe

Prep time, 15 minutes; bake time, 10 minutes; makes 25 cookies


  • 2/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flower
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. 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. Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are set, 7 to 9 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet; transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

I didn't have any all-purpose flower like the recipe originally called for so I used flour instead. I hope it works!
