CHOCOLATE CHIP BROWNIE SWIRL COOKIES (AKA BROOKIES)

Posted on

Let’s talk about Fall. Are you a fan? I know… It’s hard to smooch Summer goodbye, but I have to admit, I ♥♥♥ Fall like whoa! Mainly because there are just so many things I’m looking forward to. Long afternoon bike rides, leaf peeping (we have so many colorful trees here in the Hudson Valley!), apple picking with my nieces, and late night hot toddies by the fire. <— Just to name a few 😉

Tell me. What are you most excited to do this season?

Speaking of excited. I’m also – obviously – super stoked for the Fall baking season! During the Summer it’s so hot even the most dedicated bakers slow down. But now that the days have cooled, it’s time to crank on the oven and bust out the butter! I’ve already churned out cinnamon sugar donuts, cinnamon swirl apple crumb cake, pumpkin pie cheesecake, and butter pecan blondies… so far September has been pretty sweet. Today it’s time to introduce cookies into our Fall baking party.

And not just any cookie, my friend. Meet the chocolate chip brownie swirl cookie. Also known as a BROOKIE. You know, half brownie // half chocolate chip cookie.

Ingredients

*Prepare chocolate chip cookie recipe first; it needs to chill while you prepare the brownie cookie dough.

For the Chocolate Chip Cookie:

  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaky sea salt (regular salt will work in a pinch)
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the Brownie Cookie:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions

For the Chocolate Chip Cookie:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and sea salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl using a handheld electric mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the *room temperature butter on medium-speed until smooth. Add in the sugars and vanilla and beat on medium-speed until the mixture is pale and fluffy; about 2 minutes.
  3. Add in the egg and beat well after its addition. Gently fold in the flour mixture with a rubber spatula, stirring only until the flour begins to disappear. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for 45 minutes (set a timer!).

For the Brownie Cookie:

  1. Place butter and chocolate in a small sauce pan over medium heat and cook for about 2 minutes – stirring constantly – or until the butter and chocolate are completely melted. Remove from heat and whisk until completely smooth; set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  3. Add the sugars and the vanilla to the chocolate mixture and whisk until well combined; about 2 minutes (I recommend using a stand mixer/ handheld mixer to do this, if you have one). Add in the egg and egg yolk and beat well. Gently fold in the flour mixture with a rubber spatula, stirring only until the flour begins to disappear. Fold in chocolate chips.
