Brownie Cookies

  • Yield: Makes 34
Brownie Cookies

Source: Everyday Food, June 2009


  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until melted, then let cool.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until lightened in color. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined. With mixer on low, alternately beat in chocolate and flour mixture; mix just until combined (do not overmix).

  3. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons, about 2 inches apart, onto two parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a cookie comes out clean, 14 to 16 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

    These cookies turned out delicious for me!.. even the batter was delicious.
    Please note that you are supposed to double boil melt the chopped chocolate. I think a reviewer above must have missed that step.
    I added walnuts and accidentally doubled the butter the 1st time but they always turn out great!

    This recipe can be found in Martha Stewart's Everyday Food Light. The cookies are delicious and the ingredient list is fairly simple. They contain approximately 100 calories per cookie and 6 grams of fat. Not low-cal, but totally worth it!

    Great cookie! I think working with the melted chocolate requires a little experience. Just takes a bit of practice to learn how the chocolate reacts in the batter and how much to cool it, as well as spooning out batter before chocolate sets too much. I have several similar recipes and really like this one. Also have to weigh in on the nutrition info... cookies are a treat; everything in moderation please!

    Oh, for Pete's sake. I have to agree with the others. If you want nutrition information it is easy to get from the internet. There are several sites that will give you the information. However, it does require some work on your part. You have to enter the ingredients. I too want the nutritional information for recipes, cookies or others. So, what do I do? I go to a website that will give me this information. I type in the ingredients, say how many servings, and Voila! I have the information.

    Batter texture was like mousse. When baked, they flattened out like ginger snaps. Tasted good but just doesn't look like a normal cookie. Not sure what I did wrong. I felt more flour was needed.

    this didnt work for me.. they became light cookies with chocolate chip..

  • kaylarae 6 Jul, 2010

    These cookies are fantastic! They turned out looking even more delicious than the picture! The dough is almost more like a batter and a bit difficult to work with, but the results are worth it! I tried spreading it thin in a sheet pan and then using it for ice cream sandwiches with home made ice cream! And, in response to novadog, they were indeed, insane ;) !

  • novadog 29 Jun, 2010

    Has anybody made ice cream sandwiches with these? I bet they would be insane!

  • Secret_Agent_P 7 May, 2010

    Agree! Give away half the cookies, eat a balanced diet

  • mykele 7 May, 2010

    My complete message did not print out so I will try again. I agree with Eboo
    and Slosh6715..It one needs nutrition info for every reci pe, please buy
    cook books that specialize in such info and let the rest of us just make
    a recipe and enjoy the cookies as a treat. This site just gives recipes
    period. Mykele

    I hate to admit I agree with Eboo..EVERY single recipe just about that I have read on Martha has requests for nutrition info. Most of them in cookies, comfort food and other things that should be an obvious no if they are the type worried about nutrition content. Check your search engine. There are many websites out there that you can figure it out. It is as easy and entering the ingredients and other than that it does the work for you..

    I think the brownie cookies look very tasty and since it is a cool night in Iowa I will make some for all the kids coming to visit for Mother's Day!! Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mothers out there.

    For the love of is a COOKIE. If the nutritional facts are of that much a concern to you, you probably shouldn't be eating a cookie. Martha Stewart is in no way, shape, or form responsible for providing you with nutritional information She chooses to provide you with the means to bake delicious, butter and sugar laden cookies. Amen.

  • mickisue 7 May, 2010

    Please provide the nutritional info. We need it before deciding to try it or not.

  • Patteecakes 7 May, 2010

    Where's the nutritional information? For those of us watching fats and sodium, it should be noted. Thanks!

  • FranciesMom 3 Jun, 2009

    Yeah! I like cupcakes but love cookies. Glad the cookie recipes are back. Looking forward to trying these brownie cookies.

  • justLaurel 3 Jun, 2009

    Yeah, the cookie recipes are back! I just may have to make these. I wonder if I can sub avocado for the butter to make them vegan? Have to check if they need egg replacer too, but they look good.

  • NicoleBrowne 3 Jun, 2009

    I made a double batch of these yesterday- 1/2 for my family, 1/2 to share. the dough is quite sticky and gooey but the cookies bake up great. This was a very quick and easy recipe that I will make again.
