Even better than brownies cookies! ohsweetbasil.com
We have a pretty big issue in our marriage. It really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who knows us, but I’m going to go ahead and tell all of you because I’m hoping someone else can relate. It’s the whole reason behind these better than brownies cookies. In fact, this is the reason and solution all in one.

We love our dessert. Cade especially loves his chocolate. The issue comes when it’s time to decide on what to make. Brownies or cookies? Not only can we never pick because both sound delicious but making a brookie or the bomb diggity brownies doesn’t really solve the problem for us because it’s really just a brownie and doesn’t have that flavor or texture of the cookie enough to call it a compromise.

Not only that, but if one of us is clearly in the mood for one then the other person has a hankering for the other which also creates a dilemma because now cravings are involved and you can’t mess with that shizzle. Or can you? These better than brownies cookies are seriously a mashup of our two favorites that give enough brownie flavor and even texture that one feels like they got their way while they clearly are a cookie and have that great texture as well so it’s a win-win. (What up Stephen R Covey?! We can even use your daily habits to satisfy cravings!)

My family all reported that these cookies do in fact compete with brownies. Even the next day they were still squishy and soft. I’d say that’s a purdy darned good indication of deliciousness.

How Do You Know When Brownies Are Done?

There are a couple of ways to judge “doneness” when baking brownies.

Brownies will pull away from the sides of the pan when they are done.

Also, you can insert a toothpick near the center of the brownies to see if they are done.

Fudgy brownies will leave just a few moist crumbs clinging to the toothpick.

If you like cake-type brownies, bake until the toothpick comes out clean.

Do Brownies Need to be Refrigerated?

Fully cooked brownies will last a week or more.

Store them in an air tight container or seal-able plastic bag.

There is no need to refrigerate brownies.

How Do You Freeze Cookies?

The best way to freeze cookies is to set them out in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Place them in the freezer for a couple of hours, until they are frozen.

Then transfer them to a freezer bag.

Cookies will keep for up to 3 months.
