Definition of the perfect cookie with both worlds swirled into one.

Initially I was to settle for a brownie, but thought that would be too normal and I needed something beyond the norm- so I researched for a different way to that of a chocolate chip cookie. I’ve always wondered what it would taste like to have both cookies combined, then I stumbled upon – brookie the cookie”.

A brookie is basically a peanut butter brownie and chocolate chip cookie combined into one.

Two weeks ago I made my first batch, and it turned out fairly tasty but looked horrible on the baking tray. See for your self. It was a total fat mess.

Why? you ask: I didn’t take enough time to research on the measurement of the key ingredients hence, the final outcome of the cookie was quite soft, a bit oily and the dough was sticky. When the dough of the cookies your making gets to be sticky, it means, the flour measured was less than required -BAD MISTAKE!! I didn’t like the final outcome of the brookies, so I put the post on hold till I was ready to make the second batch and comfortable enough to post the article.

This should be my fourth dish since I started this blog, that didn’t turn out as expected. “Sometimes, you got to lose to Win again”. {Inserts Fantasia’s singing voice}.

Add on chocolate chips on top to add more appeal once they are baked. Don’t sweat if they don’t look too round – the outcome is where the focus should be at. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 12 mins on the second shelve.
