Brookies {Brownies+Cookies}



... Because everybody knows chocolate chip cookies and brownies go together like peanut butter and jelly, like salt and pepper, like mustard and ketchup, like bacon and.... everything.



Not that this is the first alliance of cookies  and brownies we've witnessed. Remember those brownie cupcakes with cookie dough frosting? Fun times!


Actually, the cookie part in this is really a chocolate chip blondie if you want to get technical. But as we all know, chocolate chip blondies are pretty much just another way of saying "giant, super chewy slab of chocolate chip cookie goodness". So whatever. Just make em.

P.S. I actually didn't finish baking them because Mom wanted to take them somewhere and they weren't quite done yet (thus the goopey looking cookie dough from the middle of the pan sneaking into some of the pictures), so I'm assuming they would need about 38 minutes. Let me know how they turn out if you bake them for the right amount of time!
