Brookie Recipe

In most houses, the food debates center around what to have to dinner. In our house, though, it’s always about what to have for dessert. It’s always a debate – pie vs. cake, cookies vs. ice cream, etc.

I love combo desserts because then we skip the debate! This Brookie recipe combines two of my favorite cookie dough recipes – Brownie Cookies and Chewy Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies – into one delicious super cookie. No debates or decisions necessary.

    My cookie dough was super dry! What do you recommend for that?

      When I end up with dry cookie dough, it’s almost always because there was too much flour in the dough. I fluff up my flour before I measure it, and then I lightly scoop it. I’ve found that fluffing it up helps in case the flour has gotten packed down. You could also try decreasing the amount of flour slightly to see whether that works. Hope that helps!

    OK…I’ve got to try this one. I am not a dough or cookie baker -because I’m intimidated with several aspects of the baking process. (uneven, cookies not consistently baked, what’s considered overbaking and how to see it, proper baking spacing etc.) Couple clarifying questions for a very inexperienced dough-cookie baker. The scoop I am planning to purchase releases round-mounds. (1) do i press the mound dough flat? (2( How does one Press the two doughs together, sealing the seam in the middle? I just need a more clarifying tutorial on this part. I’m sure well versed cookie bakers can figure it out while reading the instructions. But, ask me about batter, custard and filling —-I’m a subject expert! lol

      Absolutely! 1) I don’t. I use a cookie scoop that releases round mounds, and I leave them as-is. I find that most doughs spread enough that I don’t need to flatten the dough. Also, I like my cookies to be a little thicker, but that’s a matter of personal preference. 2) I gently press the two doughs together, and then I just run my finger over the seam to seal it. Then I re-shape the dough as needed. You won’t want to roll it because it can make the dough warm, which will lead to spreading.

      If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!
