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
10 g Coffee Extract
10 g Vanilla Extract
224 g AP Flour
40 g Cocoa Powder
9 g Baking Powder
5 g Salt, table
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.
