Brookies (Brownie Cookies)

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"A co-worker couldn't decide on her favorite for her birthday treat, brownies or chocolate chip cookies, so she said I should just pick one. On the way home I thought this up and couldn't find it on Allrecipes so I created it. These go quickly; I usually make a double batch in a jelly roll pan."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Beat softened butter, light brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a large bowl until creamy. Add 1 egg; beat until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture until dough is combined. Stir chocolate chips into dough. Spread dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish to cover completely.
  4. Stir 1 cup white sugar, melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a bowl; add 2 eggs and beat well. Mix cocoa powder into butter mixture until well-combined. Stir 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, and 1/8 teaspoon salt into cocoa mixture until batter is combined. Pour brownie batter over cookie dough and spread to cover completely.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brookies comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use store bought chocolate chip cookie dough instead of making the cookies.

Have this recipe in the oven, and it is baking over the sides of the jelly-roll pan(13 1/2 x 15) and burning on the bottom of the oven .

It was very good, but I think it could've been better. This is what I'll do when I'll make it again: 1) Use only 1 egg in the brownie batter. Two eggs makes it too cakey. 2) I made the recipes e...

EXCELLENT RECIPE! Not overly sweet, either....I've seen some recipes that I know would just be too sweet (seriously, it is a brownie on top of a cookie!) but this recipe has a good balance of s...

These are very yummy. Rich :) Based on what the other reviews said about not having enough cookie dough, I increased the recipe by half and I had a perfect amount of cookie dough to cover the 9x...

I halved this recipe and baked it in a 9x9 pan, 25 minutes was perfect in my oven. My son took this to a friend's house, I liked that it used pantry ingredients and came together fast. I think I...

Very good, yummy recipe. I'm not sure why, but this took about 40 minutes to finish baking rather than the time specified.

I've made a similar recipe for years, and everyone raves about it. I used a boxed brownie mix for the top layer; however, this brownie recipe is much much better! I always reduce sugar in reci...

This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. Didn't change anything except holding off on mixing the chips which was recommended by another reviewer. It was a bit difficult to spread the cook...

This is a 5-star recipe alright but it took forever to cook through. At leasat 40 minutes before the cookie part looked reasonably cooked. I think I'd be inclined to pre-bake the cookie layer ...
