Aunt Lynnea's Brownie Cookies


My Aunt Lynnea not only purchased some of the Please Note Personalized Mint Mixer Recipe Cards but was nice enough to fill one out and send it back to me... with a delicious brownie cookie recipe. These are seriously the best chocolate cookies I have ever baked/eaten.


Ingredients:
  • 6 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 4 squares unsweetened chocolate (use Baker's chocolate for both)
  • 3/4 cube of butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups toasted chopper walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Melt the chocolate with the butter and stir until smooth.



Stir in the sugar until well blended. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. 


Mix in the flour, salt, and baking powder. The dough will be very soft.


If adding the chopped walnuts... toast them on a cookie sheet for about 8-10 minutes and add them to the dough now. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons on to an ungreased cookie sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart.


Bake for 12 minutes and watch them carefully. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet and cool completely on wire racks. Be sure and eat these with a big glass of milk... they're rich!

    Is it possible to get alternative measurements for the butter and chocolate of peeps not in the US?

  3. Catriona, the chocolate squares are 1 ounce each and 3/4 cube of butter = 6 tablespoons. I just found this great food measurement converter:

    Hope that helps!

    2. My "non-stick" pans do that to all my cookies. So I don't use them.
      Did you use fresh Baking Powder? Or did you use Baking Soda instead of Baking Powder?
      Make sure to use fresh All-Purpose flour.

    3. Try baking them on parchment paper. They tend to not spread as much

    1. I've actually never tried almond flour with any of my recipes so I'm really not sure. Sorry about that. If you test it out, I'd love to hear what results you have.

  18. I can't wait to try these! Thank you for the recipe! I had these cookies a couple yrs. ago at a country club but they were made with a little coconut ball inside (the type that is inside a Mounds or Almond Joy candy bar). They were the best cookie I've ever tried but couldn't find a recipe.

  19. Can you clarify the amount of butter used? We don't have "cubes" of butter here.

  20. Mine turned out very dry. I thought they would be gooey. Any tips on what could have gone wrong?

    1. They're not very gooey. They have more of a cake-like brownie texture. If they are EXTREMELY dry, you might want to cut down on the baking time. Sifting the flour will make them fluffier too.
