Brookies (Brownie Cookies)


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.

Cookie Layer:

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • ½ cup light brown sugar

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Brownie Layer:

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • cup cocoa powder

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • teaspoon salt


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

  2. Prepare cookie layer: Beat butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Add egg; beat until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.

  3. Whisk together flour, 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.

  4. Prepare brownie layer: Stir together sugar, melted butter, and vanilla in a bowl; add eggs and beat well. Mix in cocoa powder until well-combined. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt until batter is combined. Pour over cookie layer and spread to cover completely.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into 20 bars.

You can use store-bought chocolate chip cookie dough instead of making the cookies.
