Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies


I don't have a whole lot of cookie recipes n my repertoire, but the one I do have are pretty darn good recipes. The smell of cookies baking brings a smile to almost anyone's face. C'mon admit it, who can be angry when there's fresh homemade cookies around!


They were on top of the world when I held out a plate of these babies! these cookies made returning to school just a little bit easier.

Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies -

1/2 cup salted butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp. white vinegar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 - 1/4 cup plain brownie mix from the box
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, sugars, vanilla, salt, and vinegar.
Beat in the eggs, then the baking soda and flour. Stir in the brownie mix and then fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop the cookie dough by a small tablespoonful onto a baking sheet lined with a siplat or parchment paper. Bake for 8 to 10. Remove from the oven and transfer to a rack to cool for 3 minutes before plating.

How can you look at these and not feel blissful?
