Cookies, Oh How I Love Thee...

Cookies, Cookies, Cookies!!

I love trying out and tweaking recipes I find randomly on-line. I do it with pretty much EVERYTHING including main dishes, cakes, cookies, and pretty much anything I cook or bake. I was in the baking mood tonight and wanted to try out two new cookie recipes I found and have been wanting to test.
Here it goes.....

Brownie Cookies

1/4 cup of butter, unsalted
1 1/2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cups of granulated sugar
3 whole eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or flavor
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
(can omit the salt if you use salted butter)

Optional Ingredients:
Mini marshmallows
Chopped pecans
Chopped walnuts
Melted caramel

Preparation Instructions:
In a microwave safe bowl, slowly melt the butter and chocolate chips until the butter is melted and the chocolate begins to melt. Remove from the microwave and stir until all of the chocolate chips have completely melted.

In a separate bowl, beat together the sugar, eggs and vanilla until mixed well.

Next, add the melted chocolate mixture and add in the remaining ingredients.

Refridgerate this dough for at least one hour, or until it reaches a manageable consistency.

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Using a tablespoon or melon baller, drop dough onto your baking sheets. Make sure to leave a few inches of space in between each ball of dough. Bake your cookies for around 12 minutes!
