Brownie Cookies

So Little Devil has this skinny boyfriend.  She not only shares my love of baking, but also apparently the need to fatten up everyone around her with over the top sweets.  About every other night she makes him a batch of these cookies.  And then our house smells awesome like brownies only she doesn't let us eat them.  When Mr. DD and I were dating he told me that he liked banana pudding.  And I made it for him in the biggest bowl I could find.  Like literally a wash tub of banana pudding.  To this day he will not touch banana pudding.  So far the boyfriend hasn't gotten tired of these cookies.  Or if he has he's smart enough not to tell her so he'll keep getting homemade treats.  Even if you don't make these every other night like she does, make at least one batch.  They are dark, rich and decadent just like a brownie, with all the fun of a cookie!

Brownie Cookies
inspired by Chocolate, Chocolate and More

1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons regular cocoa powder
3 tablespoons special dark cocoa powder
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Begin by melting butter in a small saucepan on the stove.  Whisk in the 7 tablespoons of regular cocoa until mixture is well-combined and smooth.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool.  In a small bowl combine the remaining special dark cocoa powder with the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.  In the bowl of an electric mixer combine the cooled butter/cocoa mixture with the sugar and eggs.  Once this mixture is blended, slowly add in the flour mixture.  Add chocolate chips.  Cover and refrigerate the dough at least 2 hours.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto greased or parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake 8-10 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow cookies to remain on baking sheet 10 minutes before removing to cooling racks.   

Prep Time:  Approximately 20 minutes plus time to chill
Cook Time:  Approximately 10 minutes
