Brownie Cookies

How do you decide between a craving for cookies and brownies?  That is a tough one, right?  My answer... make something that includes them both.

I started with a quick fudge brownie pre-mixed package.


I made up the mix according to the directions.

I then added a generous amount of chopped walnuts for a little extra crunch.


Stir them in.  I've been really into capturing more action in my photos lately.  Can you feel the stirring?


This is really what started the whole craving.  I had previously made a batch of chocolate chip cookies that ended up baking a little more crunchy than I like.  I am totally a warm out of the oven chewy cookie kind of gal -- I bet you pegged that already!

So, what do you do with overly crunchy cookies?  There are several options:
  • dunk them in milk to soften them up and then gobble
  • put them in your boyfriends, husbands, or kids lunches -- so they eat them instead of you
  • -- or -- reinvent them into a crunchy craving!
I choose lucky door number three!!  Here are those pesky crunchy cookies.


Pour the brownie batter in pre-greased pan like-a so.


Then crumble up those cookies and spread them all over the top of the mixture.  Ohhh ma goodness.. doesn't that just perk you up a little!?!

I popped this mixture in the oven for the package cooking time and here are the results!

Crispy.
Brown.
Mouthwatering.
Goodness!

A little crunch from the cookie pieces and walnuts.

A little gooey from the brownie.


I would definitely make these up again!  It's a fantastic way to use up cookies that are reaching the end of their life.  And it really is a nice surprise to bit into one -- and realize you can have the best of both baked worlds!

So a cookie brownie or a brownie cookie would be...

Brookies?
Crownies?

No matter what you call them... they rock!!

What have you experimented with lately?
