Brownie Cookies - Martha

Another cookie for our wounded who fight for us and country.  My aim now is to get a good share of chocolate cookies.  I have made the chocolate caramel cookies which I will post.  Now for the brownie cookies, a cakey chocolate cookie that is a change from the rest of the chocolate cookies.  This is another easy cookie to make and it goes quickly.  My choice is a smaller round than Martha makes so I cut the cooking time. The recipe below has my changes included.

Brownie Cookies  (adapted from Martha Stewart) Everyday Food, June 2009

  • Yield Makes 34


  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chocolate in microwave oven and heat on medium, checking every 25 seconds.  When, you can mix this into a smooth chocolate, stop and put aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until lightened in color. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined. With mixer on low, alternately beat in chocolate and flour mixture; mix just until combined (do not overmix).
  3. Drop dough , using small cookie scoop, about 2 inches apart, onto two parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a cookie comes out clean, 14 to 16 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool.


  1. I'd better stay away from this recipe until my chocolate craving passes... otherwise I might eat the whole batch!

  2. These cookies look delicious, really good!
