Brooksters


The best of two worlds rolled up into one cookie-brownie concoction that will knock your socks off!  You will go back to this recipe and bake it over and over again because everyone will request it!


This recipe is found in the Baked Elements cookbook which I think just may be my favorite Baked cookbook.  It is found in the chocolate chapter along with many other tempting chocolate treats.


 You make a simple chocolate chip cookie dough with flour, salt, baking soda,  sugar, dark brown sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and chocolate chips.  The recipe makes way too much and you always have loads left over...which is okay if you want to make chocolate chip cookies.  But I half the cookie part of the recipe and I still end up with extras so I made some kitchen sink cookies with it.  My hubby loved it!  He always complains he never gets any of the stuff I bake so I baked those especially for him.  I just threw in some oats, coconut and pecans...he said they were really good and has eaten over half of them already...lol!  Then you make this lush chocolatey brownie batter and put that in a cupcake pan then you chill both for 3 hours.  You then top the brownie batter with the cookie dough, bake and magic happens!


I make these Brooksters every year for our annual Pig Roast...along with many other treats.  The chill time takes a long time so you have to plan 
ahead and really read the recipe well before starting to 
make them, but that they are really quite easy.


I also bake them in cupcake pans...I do have some 4 inch tart pans but I just think that they would be too large so I like to make them in nice little easy to handle portions.  But I would imagine the 4" tart pan version would be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and hot fudge sauce!


So here they are all packed up and ready to go.  We have a visit at work from some higher ups and I always bake them some kind of treat.  I know, I am a real brown noser....but, hey baking is what I do and it makes me happy 
 to make people smile and I kinda think they have come to 
expect some kind of treat from me.


Until next time...
Stay sweet and as always,

Enjoy!

  1. They're so cute! Ah, I love the Brooksters-- that was my first recipe when I joined BSM! :) I know what you mean, they're pretty big. I love their unique baby-pie shape, and I wish I could find a mini-mini pie pan. But this is a great way to make them smaller-- I'll have to give it a try. My hubby complains about lack of treats too-- they're always for someone else! ;-)
