Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookies

My neighbor had a baby, and I am on the meal train, so I made them an asparagus frittata for dinner. While the frittata looked amazing and I knew would be well received, I was thinking the 4-year-old big sister might be as excited about having no treats so I quickly scanned the cupboards and decided to make brownie chocolate chip cookies.

Brownie cookies have a similar texture and taste to a brownie but with all the crispy edges of a cookie. Every chocolate lover will like these cookies.

Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 12

These cookies are chewy and chocolaty, just like brownies. This makes a small batch because they are best eaten within a day or two

Ingredients

  • 2 cups or one 10 oz 60% cacao semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold coffee
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Microwave a cup of chocolate chips and butter for one minute and stir until melted.
  • Whisk the eggs, sugar, and coffee in a large mixing bowl for one to two minutes until combined well.
  • Slowly add the chocolate mixture to the large mixing bowl ingredients and whisk until combined.
  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt into the bowl and stir until combined with 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  • Portion heaping tablespoons of batter about 2 inches apart on a parchment- or Silpat-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are cracked and puffed on top.
  • Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Here are some tips for baking perfect cookies:

  • Don’t overbake the cookies. Cookies are done when the edges are just set, and the centers are still slightly soft.
  • Let the cookies cool completely on a wire rack before storing them. This will help them to retain their shape and texture. These particular cookies are good for 1-2 days before drying out.
