Some days I am the laziest cook around. The good thing about the way that I cook is that you can’t always tell that I used the fewest pots possible. That’s one of the things that I really love about these cookies. They look hard but they’re not. I’m not sure if it was a compliment or an insult, but when I gave some of them to my mom she said that she thought they were store bought, because they looked so good. (She meant it to be a compliment, really).
You get your hands dirty with these bad boys. I know, I probably could have used a mixer, but then I would have needed to clean the mixer and where’s the fun in that?

Chocolate Brownie Cookies
These are for serious chocoholics.
- chocolate chips - 1/2 cup
- soy milk - 1/2 cup
- cocoa powder - 3/4 cup
- oil - 1/2 cup
- sugar - 1 1/2 cups
- vanilla - 2 teaspoon
- flour - 2 cups
- baking powder - 2 1/2 teaspoons
- salt - pinch
- powdered sugar - 1/2 cup
- In a medium sauce pan, melt chocolate with soy milk.
- Stir in the rest of the ingredients minus the powdered sugar.
- Knead dough to make sure all ingredients are mixed together thoroughly.
- Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes to harden dough.
- Roll into tablespoon size balls and roll in powdered sugar.
- Flatten balls and place on a cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until cookies start to crack.
- Cool and eat.
I knead the dough directly in the pot. That’s how much I hate cleaning up a big chocolatey mess. Don’t knock it, it works.
There’s a big debate in my house on whether the cookies taste better hot out of the oven or cooled. I like them better after they’ve had a chance to cool because they are just too soft for me right out of the oven. I’m not alone. My son agrees with me so I can’t be totally crazy (unless, of course, crazy is a genetic thing that my son inherited from me). Gil and the girls like them best after they’ve only had a couple of minutes to cool. Don’t get me wrong, they are really good that way too. They just seem more fudgey to me after they’ve cooled off. I know, it defies logic, but that’s the way that it is.
No matter how you like them, these cookies are totally decadent and rich. Very yum!Add to Favourites
