Brookies Cookies. Brownies but better!
One thing my son loves is Brownies. Still, I have never been able to get him to eat more than a few before I have to send the rest to neighbours or take them to work, but he loves them in his own annoying way. He forgets to eat. (Which is more than I can say for myself). I have often wondered what happened when he was born, was he swapped? He has never really been interested in food, yet lives with a parent that thinks about the next thing to be cooked from the moment their eyes are open each morning.
Last week I needed to make a few Brownies in cupcake papers for some kids to eat at a picnic. I had a whole lot of Brownie mixture leftover, so I made Brookies. Have heard of them? They are a Brownie made into a Cookie or a mixture of a Brownie and a Cookie. However, you like to look at it. Now everyone has their favourite recipe for Brownies and this is mine. I have been making it for 15 years. It has never done me wrong. The mixture is light and airy and you will be in heaven first bite even as a humble Brownie, as Brookies this mixture is the very very best. This recipe takes a bit of beating but it is worth it. Some Brownies are made by mixing everything in one pot and that is a great way to make Brownies BUT this Brownie mix will change your mind.The reason this mixture makes such great brownies and therefore Brookies is because it cooks into a mixture that is amazingly chocolate dense(!) but light enough to make a mixture that has a beautiful almost flaky top. It’s perfect in every way. Make it with a handheld mixer or in a stand mixer but whatever you do beat those eggs to make a for a light and fluffy mixture then add the chocolate.
I stuffed them with a really simple white chocolate filling and sandwiched them together. To my surprise, at least half of them were eaten right here at home. So…. I still had to take some to work but, partial win. What I can tell you from this experiment is that Brookies are an unusual and very delicious cookie/ brownie. They last 5-6 days and make a very impressive thing to pull out with a cup of tea.
