Chocolate “Brownie” Cookies

Chocolate “Brownie” Cookies

These delightful cookies are like a cross between a cookie and a brownie. Their texture reminds me of a brownie. They are soft inside, with just a little crunch on the outside. These are a fun addition to any holiday cookie tray.  Plus, they are chocolate – which is always a good thing!!

I like to finish them with a drizzle of white or dark chocolate. It just dresses them up for the party a little. You can dust them with powdered sugar, or roll them in cinnamon sugar when they are still warm.  You can also frost them and add sprinkles, if you like.

Trust me, even plain, everyone is going to love these cookies. They freeze well, so you could make a double batch, then freeze some to enjoy later.
