This brookie recipe was inspired by a co-worker who couldn't decide if she wanted brownies or chocolate chip cookies for her birthday treat. Since she said I should just pick one, I thought this up on the way home. I couldn't find a recipe like it on Allrecipes, so I created it. These brookies go quickly; I usually make a double batch in a jelly roll pan.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Beat together butter, brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in a large bowl until creamy. Add 1 egg; beat until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.

  • Whisk together 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture until dough is combined. Stir chocolate chips into dough. Spread dough evenly into the prepared baking dish; set aside.

  • Stir together 1 cup white sugar, melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a bowl; add 2 eggs and beat well. Mix in cocoa powder until well-combined. Stir in 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, and 1/8 teaspoon salt until batter is combined. Pour brownie batter over cookie dough and spread to cover completely.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center 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.
