Somethings just make you smile.
Chocolate Chip Cookies, for example. Or Brownies.
Or Both??? (what!)
Imagine the size of your smile if you combined chocolate chip cookies and brownies together. And if you took the shortcut of using brownie mix and chocolate chip cookie mix so you didn't even have to think? Even a kitchen amateur can do this. Although if you really are a kitchen amateur, you might need to borrow a springform pan from a friend.
A sweet slice of ooey gooey perfection. Enough to put your whole office in a sugar buzz first thing in the morning (this I know from first hand experience).
Brownie Cookie Pie
Recipe Source: Betty Crocker
What You Need
1 package of brownie mix, mixed per box instructions (and high altitude instructions if you live here in Colorado)
1 package of sugar cookie mix, mixed per box instructions (ditto high altitude stuff here)
What You Do
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
Make brownie mix. Pour into pan. Eat remaining brownie batter if some just happens to stay in the bowl. Bake for 30 minutes. Let brownie base cool 10 minutes afterwards.
Make cookie dough.
(side note: I am saddened that the we have come to the point that the package has in big bold letters Do Not Eat Raw Dough. I eat it anyway. I'm a risk taker like that.)
After brownies have cooled for 10 minutes drop spoonfuls of cookie dough all over the brownies. Use your floured hands to press it evenly. Bake for 20 minutes. Then cover with foil and bake 10 more minutes (or until cookie dough sets). Let your "pie" cool for at least an hour before slicing.
The slices will disappear just as fast as slices of pizza. Just watch it happen.
What's your favorite thing to do with cookie dough?
