How to Make The Famous Brookie Dessert

BY KRISTEN GARRIDO

What Is A Brookie?

A Brookie is  a decadent dessert that combines the best of both worlds: a brownie and a cookie, making the perfect compilation of sweetness.

Ingredients for Brownie Layer

The ingredients needed for the brownie layer will be flour, cocoa powder, sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract.

Ingredients for Cookie Layer

The ingredients needed for the cookie layer will be flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, butter, eggs, and chocolate chips.

How Do You Make A Brookie?

Once you have all the necessary ingredients ready to go, the actual process on how to make a Brookie is actually pretty simple. 

Make the Brownie Batter

First, in a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the brownie layer, then melt the butter and chocolate together. Mix in the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth.

Prepare the Cookie Dough

In another mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar for the cookie layer. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, then mix in the flour and chocolate chips until a soft dough forms.

When Two Become One

Once you're done with mixing both brownie and cookie ingredients separately, it's time to put them together and make the magical Brookie. 

Layer the Batter

Preheat the oven and grease a baking pan. Spread the brownie batter in the bottom of the pan, then drop spoonfuls of the cookie dough on top. Swirl the two batters together.

Bake The Brookie

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or typically until the edges are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.

Cut And Cool

Allow the brookie to cool in the pan for about 15 to 20 minutes before slicing and serving. You can also add your own personal touches like powdered sugar or fudge icing.

Serve And Enjoy 

Now you have freshly baked brookies, ready to be served and enjoyed with friends or just kept for yourself for whenever you need a sweet treat.
