chewy brownie cookies

when is a brownie not quite a brownie? why, when it’s in the form of a cookie, of course!

brownies in their traditional bar shapes are plentiful and welcome by most everyone, but sometimes a brownie posing as a cookie can be a good thing. think of it this way, no one needs to fight over who gets the corners. these cookies are a bit crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, and if you really wanted to be decadent, why not drizzle some chocolate glaze over the top of them after they’ve cooled. they are definitely quite fabulous with or without glaze! and perfect with a nice tall glass of milk. yum.
