Fudgy Brownie Cookies

These are sooooo good! They are slightly crispy on the outside with a nice soft fudgy center. They are a lot like brownies but are cookies. You can't see the chocolate chip chunks in the cookies below and this is because I did not let the batter cool enough before adding the chocolate chips so they kind of just melted into the cookie. I may try adding 1 cup chocolate chips to make the chocolate batter and 1 cup white chocolate chips to be stirred in for a change. Try adding walnuts or pecans if you so desire. Hubby and I both loved how these cookies turned out! Enjoy!

Fudgy Brownie Cookies
From Betty Crocker Christmas Cookies

1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
12 z bag semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/8 tsp salt

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. I just lined the cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In 2-quart saucepan, heat butter and 1 cup of the chocolate chips over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar. Cool slightly, stirring occasionally. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, cocoa and salt. Stir in remaining 1 cup chocolate chips (make sure your batter is cool, otherwise your chocolate chips will melt like mine in the photo). Onto cookie sheets, drop dough by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.

Bake 10 minutes or until almost set. Cool 5 minutes, remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.

Tip: Add a powdered sugar stencil design on top of the cookies to dress them up fr the holidays. Serve warm with a tall glass of milk for the ultimate afternoon treat!
