I posted a recipe for some brownie cookies about three years ago. Though I do try to come up with new recipes and try out other peoples recipes to share with you, I also like to tweak the recipes I know that are good but could be better. This is one of them. I think these have really got a true brownie texture to them. I added some white chocolate chips too since I had them laying around, but if you want, leave them out or add even more chocolate, which never hurts.
8 oz, semisweet baking chocolate, 1 1/3 C flour, 3/4 C brown sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 eggs, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/3 c pecans, 6 TB butter, 8 oz. of chocolate chips, and 4 oz of white chocolate chips.
Melt 8 oz of semi sweet chocolate and butter in the microwave. Every 30 seconds stop the microwave and stir and the chocolate and butter are melted and combined. It should take about 2 minutes. Set aside.
Beat together eggs, brown sugar and vanilla. Once combined, stir in chocolate mixture, followed by the flour. Fold in the nut and then both chocolate chips and white chips.
Chill dough for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, scoop 1 TB of dough balls onto a cookie sheet. Chill cookie sheet for at least one hour. Trust me, the cookies will stay their shape much better, otherwise you will have flat, hard cookies.
Bake at 350 after chilling for 15 minutes. Let cool and enjoy, if you can wait.
