Easy Brookies (Brownie Cookies) Recipe

Easy Brookies (Brownie Cookies) Recipe – This brookie recipe was inspired by a co-worker who couldn’t decide if she wanted brownies or chocolate chip cookies for her birthday treat. Since she said I should just pick one, I thought this up on the way home. I couldn’t find a recipe like it on Allrecipes, so I created it. These brookies go quickly; I usually make a double batch in a jelly roll pan.

Servings: 20


Cookie Layer:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Brownie Layer:
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.

Prepare cookie layer: Beat 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Add one egg; beat until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.

Whisk 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture until dough is combined. Stir chocolate chips into dough. Spread dough evenly into the prepared baking dish; set aside.

Prepare brownie layer: Stir 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a bowl; add two eggs and beat well. Mix in cocoa powder until well-combined. Stir in 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, and 1/8 teaspoon salt until batter is combined. Pour over cookie layer and spread to cover completely.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into 20 bars.
