Pinned & prepped: Brownie cookies

2012 April 3
by Emily Hill

Yep, the first recipe I go to when I want to prep something from Pinterest is a dessert. What can I say? I rarely crave cilantro grilled chicken or spaghetti with radicchio and cehvre at 10pm at night. And by rarely, I mean never.

In fact, I tend to crave something baked and chocolaty, kind of like these brownie cookies:


We baked up a batch of these brownie cookies from pure & yummy last week and they are just as decadent and chocolaty and brownie-like as you’d think. They even come in a convenient portion-control size (as long as you eat only one at a time).

Sadly, though,I may not make these again. First, the dough was super runny and made transferring them to the pan a bit tricky. Then I had a really, REALLY hard time removing the brownie cookies from the pan. I used my trusty Silpat first and then tried generously greasing the non-stick pan. Perhaps parchment paper would’ve done the trick but I didn’t think to try that until it was too late.

On the plus side, I burned a lot of calories getting those babies onto the cooling rack, which meant I could eat more cookies. Bonus!

Next time I think I’ll try these flour-less, butter-less deep dark chocolate cookies.

What you’ll need for the original recipe:

Butter
Unsweetened chocolate squares
Semisweet chocolate chips
Flour
Baking powder
Salt
Eggs
Sugar
Vanilla

    I think you totally could, though I’m not sure about how runny they would be. Maybe choose a mix you know is a bit thicker? Or add a little flour?

    You know, I’m not sure how gooey they are. They’re pretty standard. I think you could definitely find something more decadent. Perhaps I’ll do some research… ;)
