I have a slight obsession with brownies. All desserts really but brownies are at the very top! So how do you have the perfect day. First you take your kids to the local pumpkin patch!
It was a perfect 70 degrees and we got the coolest pumpkins I have ever seen.
I love this sweet family of mine!
When we got home and the girls were sleeping I decided to enter into a chocolate dream land. So if you like the edges of brownies where they are crunchy and then soft in the middle this is the cookie for you.
Cook at 350 for 9-10 minutes
Makes 36 cookies
4 ounces baking chocolate (unsweetened or bittersweet)
2 cups sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp of cocoa powder
Powder sugar for dusting
Start with melting the chocolate by putting it in the microwave. I used unsweetened to not have an overly sweet cookie.
Cream together butter and sugar
Add in eggs and vanilla
Then when the chocolate is cooled but not stiff add it into your butter mixture. Should look like this.
Now add in all your dry mix a little bit at a time.
I used a portion scoop so all my cookies were the same and placed them on a non stick mat.
Cook and then let cool completely before you sprinkle with powdered sugar.
I’m about to go on a really strict diet for thirty days so this is exactly what I needed to pull me through.
