Chewy Brownie Cookies
I've had several people tell me these are the best cookies they ever ate. The perfect chewy brownie cookie with the crisp edges. Delicious!
brown sugar firmly packed
crisco or 2/3 crisco stick
all purpose flour
unsweetened cocoa powder
semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375. Place sheets of foil on countertop for cooling.
Place brown sugar, shortening, water and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed with mixer until well blended. Add eggs 1 at a time and beat well.
Combine flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Add to shortening mixture and beat at low speed JUST UNTIL blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded measuring teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake one baking sheet at a time at 375 for 7 to 9 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE.
Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet then move cookies to foil.
