As Delicious As It Sounds

Thinking back, this may have been one of my very first more ‘risky’ baking attempts. That isn’t to say it is very difficult, because its not, but these are definitely a step up from your traditional chocolate chip cookie.

These pillow cookies are brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies – yes, that exists. And it is as delicious as it sounds.

Ingredients:
1 cup, butter
1 1/2 cups, packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon, vanilla
2 1/2 cups, all purpose flour
2 teaspoons, baking powder
1/2 teaspoon, salt
12 oz bag, semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 package, brownie mix
Instructions:

1. Make brownies according to package directions and let cool. Cut into squares.

2. To make the cookie dough, begin by beating butter with a mixer until creamy.

3. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and mix. Add flour to butter mixture and beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Let dough chill covered in the refrigerator for at least an hour.3. Add brown sugar and beat until smooth. Add eggs, yolk and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Using a measuring cup, scoop the batter by the 1/4 – 1/2 cup (depending on size you want). Place the dough on parchment paper – work quickly so the dough remains chilled.

5. Make an indentation in the cookie dough and place a brownie square in the center. Press the brownie gently down and work the remaining cookie dough around the brownie. You can use your hands to shape the dough into a ball. If your dough gets too soft, you can chill the rolled dough balls for a few minutes before baking.

6. Bake the cookies for 18 minutes and let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes. Then cool completely on a wire rack.

Just to note, these cookies do come out pretty enormous but I think they could easily be made smaller. I recommend trying to cut them down a little.
