I love chocolate, as I am sure many do. Usually chocolate just hits the spot for me, regardless of what else I am eating, or what else I am in the mood for. One time I came home from school and the house smelled absolutely divine. Mom had gone and whipped up a delicious batch of something she called the brownie cookie that she'd found in an old magazine. I was hooked. These cookies are seriously some of my most favorite and you should be able to enjoy them too.
Here are the ingredients that you will need:
Mixing up these cookies is incredibly simple and the quality of the cookie dough will leave you in no doubt it its truly amazing nature. Start off by combining and creaming the shortening, sugar, water, and vanilla. Put all the ingredients into a bowl and use a hand mixer t o mix it all together. (If you are doubling the batch, then you might want to use a larger mixer.) Once those ingredients are creamed together, add the eggs and beat them in. The dough should start to look a little fluffy. The next thing you should do is combine the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Combine these dry ingredients separately, and then add them gradually to the rest of the dough. Add these combined dry ingredients and once you have them all in, continue beating the dough until everything is just blended.
The last thing you have to do is add the mini chocolate chips. These is no exact amount of mini chocolate chips that you need—just add the amount of chocolate chips you want. Some like more and some like less, so do whatever suits your fancy! Once the dough is completely mixed up, chocolate chips and all, have a spoonful or two of dough (just to make sure it all turned out okay, you know), put it in the refrigerator and let it chill for at least an hour and a half. Once the dough is chilled enough, form the dough into small balls and place them on a cookie sheet. Put the cookie sheets into an oven preheated 375 degree oven for seven to nine minutes. Make sure not to bake these cookies too much!
Once these cookies are baked, feel free to simply enjoy this wonderful combination of brownie and cookie!
