Brownie Cookies

I found myself at a bakery the other week picking out a few items I wanted to taste. Brownie cookies happened to be part of that selection. I felt silly purchasing something I could so easily make. I prefer these simply because they only require cocoa powder and I don’t have wait the extra 2 minutes to melt chocolate. A bit of Maldon Salt on top is my usual route. Easy peasy.

112 g Butter

235 g Brown Sugar

80 g Sugar

 

3 Eggs

10 g Coffee Extract

10 g Vanilla Extract

224 g AP Flour

40 g Cocoa Powder

9 g Baking Powder

5 g Salt, table

Method:

Combine butter and sugars, do not cream. *

Add eggs, coffee, and vanilla extract gradually. Sift together all dry ingredients, add just to combine.

Bake 350 F, from frozen. 10 min

* I always prefer room temp butter. I leave out a few sticks at all times. Even if I’m not baking I could use it in savory preparations or on toast.

 

Oatmeal Cookies

Lately, I’ve been really into the idea of Oatmeal Cookies. Most likely because I loved Little Debbie Oatmeal cookies so much growing up. While this recipe isn’t quite like those of my beloved childhood memories, I do like them. They make me as though I’m eating breakfast when I’m snacking.

112 g Butter

90 g Dark Brown Sugar

50 g Sugar

1 Egg

10 g Vanilla Extract

112 g AP Flour

5 g Cinnamon

3 g Salt

130 g Oats

Cream butter and sugars together.

Add eggs and vanilla, slowly.

Add dry ingredients until combined. Mix in oats.
