Brownie cookies

Apparently there is a type of cookie that is very popular and found in many cookie shops and malls… but I’ve never had them before!  Both a coworker and a friend remarked of a “shiny chocolate cookie” that they’ve seen in various locations, which tends to be crisp and shiny on the surface, then chewy and fudgy inside.  Hm, sounds more like a brownie to me!

My coworker dug around the interwebs for weeks trying to find this diamond in the rough, and finally came upon a recipe in the blog Cookie Madness that seemed to be what she was looking for.  Since the ingredients were very simple (you’ll most likely have most of it lying around your pantry), why not give it a shot?

I’m bringing these cookies to my Access small group today, hopefully everyone likes them!  (Recipes and pictures after the jump)
