If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know my family LOVES brownies. These homemade brownie cookies are no exception. They were gone in no time! Actually, I came home one afternoon, craving something chocolate and the cookie jar was empty! But I guess that’s to be expected with teenagers in the house!
You can see from the photos these are not flat cookies. They are a taller cookie and that is a result of the use of shortening rather than butter. Cookies made with shortening tend to be softer and more tender giving them a more brownie-like texture.
When I started thinking about the brownie recipes on the site I wondered if there could be to many. There are chocolate chip brownies, ultimate double chocolate brownies, cream cheese swirl brownies, and grasshopper brownies, just to name a few. But then I asked my boys and they said no, so I guess there is always room for more brownie recipes.
