Best Ever Brownie Cookies !

Colleen Sowa


We love this "traveling brownie" as it is the best of both worlds... individual brownies that look and bake up like a cookie!

This is a cookie that the kids just love! We haven't made them for a while... but plan on baking up a big batch soon! We double the batch and the kids bring them to school for treat day... and oh what a treat these are!
