Chewy Brownie Cookies

I've been thinking about making a change around here... not a big one, but one you may notice if you check the header up above.  It's official, my little blog is now a ".com" address!  I decided to change the name a bit for many reasons, but I kinda like that it's a shorter name to remember and it's a bit different.  Please take a moment to update your bookmarks - I think the subscriptions should still work fine, but please let me know if they aren't - RSS or email - as I will have to figure out what else I need to update.

Now, for something sweet to start off the week!  Last weekend, My Boys had friends over for play dates and I got the urge to make cookies.  Nothing new there, right?  I pulled out an old mini cookbook - Crisco Cookies for a Year of Celebrations.  I've had this one forever, and pull it out every once in awhile.

I decided that I liked the sound of Chewy Brownie Cookies... and luckily, I had all the ingredients on hand.


Super easy to make, these cookies will be a repeat in our house!  If you store them in a sealed container, they will stay chewy for several days... if they last that long.

All of the boys (including My Husband) enjoyed these cookies.  I liked that they had slightly crisp edges with a chewy center... that's a satisfying cookie.  Get my sweet fix with one cookie - although it is hard to stop at just one.

Chewy Brownie Cookies
Source:  Crisco- Cookies for a Year of Celebrations

  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup Crisco all-vegetable shortening or 2/3 Crisco stick
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Place sheets of aluminum foil on countertop for cooling the cookies.
  2. Place brown sugar, shortening, water and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.  Beat at medium speed with a mixer until well blended.  Add eggs; beat well.
  3. Combine flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda.  Add to shortening mixture; beat at low speed until just blended.  Stir in white chocolate chips.
  4. Drop dough by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls  inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake one baking sheet at a time for 7-9 minutes or until cookies are set (mine took about 10 minutes to reach this point).  Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet.  Remove cookies to foil to cool completely.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Thanks, Jamie & Leslie! I am so glad the email subscription still works!

Lynda - No real issues so far. I did it through blogger though and have the old address redirecting, so I think that helps.
