Let’s say you want to make brownies for the kids, but don’t have an hour to wait for them to bake. These brownie cookies are made from a box of brownie mix, and only take 12 minutes in the oven! From 7-year-old Punky: “These are the best cookies I’ve ever tasted in my whole life.” They are especially good warm.
-1 box chocolate brownie mix (We used Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-1/3 cup vegetable oil
-3/4 cup powdered sugar
-Preheat oven to 350°F.
-Stir together brownie mix, flour, eggs and oil in a medium bowl. If you have time, put this mixture in the refrigerator for 10-30 minutes. It’ll harden up a little bit and be much less messy during the next step.
-Place powdered sugar in a separate bowl.
-For each cookie, scoop 1 rounded tablespoon of dough and place in powdered sugar. Roll dough gently into a ball, coating thoroughly with powdered sugar.
-Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. (For best results, I use a baking stone- no burned bottoms!)
-Bake 11-13 minutes.
Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
