Oh My Potluck!

Good recipes to share with friends.

Brownie Meets Cookie… “Oh, Hai Cookie!”

brownie cookies When I found the ultimate dessert recipe, nothing could keep me away. I didn’t even change or play with it; Perfect Palate’s chef Jenny did it right. She crafted a perfect cookie.

It hits all the right notes. It has rich chocolate enrobed in golden dough. It melts in your mouth. It has just the right consistency balance – not too crunchy and not too soft. Perfection.

Cold weather favours warm and sweet treats such as this. I find myself cozied up with hot beverages (tea, milk and hot chocolate) much more often, and nothing goes with these drinks like golden cookies.

Recently, after a particularly cold errand run in the city, my poor cheeks were red from exposure to the winter winds and I got home thinking all joy had been crushed by the deceptively light snow. But, I noshed on a cookie and sipped some hot chocolate and the bad mood healed. That is cookie magic, people; sweetness heals all wounds.

To go with all this sweetness, Au Revoir Simone is an irresistibly sweet band consisting of three talented ladies from Brooklyn. Like all their music, the song “Somebody Who” is amazingly darling and well performed. It just seems to fit these cookies perfectly, like icing on a cake.

Speaking of all this cold, what do you do to combat the winter doldrums? Is it a mug of hot cocoa, an enticing books, or maybe a bit of both? Let me know in the comments before you make a batch of these beauties.

Brownie Meets Cookie… “Oh, Hai Cookie!”

(Borrowed from Picky Palate)

Makes 3 dozen cookies

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 cups cubed prepared brownies
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F (175˚C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place butter and sugars into the bowl of a stand or electric mixer. Beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until well combined.
  3. Place flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl, mixing to combine. Stirring with a wooden spoon, add dry ingredients to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips and brownie chunks until combined.
  4. Roll dough into heaping tablespoon sized balls and place onto prepared baking sheet, about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) apart. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes until cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Store in an airtight container and take to the potluck (quickly or else they’re at risk of being eaten all up).
