Today I came back home to Dallas after a long and fun week of Texas Soccer camps. The first thing I do when I get home (after saying hello to my family and precious doggies, of course) is BAKE. What’s on the menu today? Marble cookies. Chocolate chip cookie dough and brownies wonderfully crafted into one delicious cookie. These cookies are always a huge hit among my friends, but they sure do have a lot of chocolate and are rich rich rich! The recipe is simple but takes a while because you have to bake a batch of brownies before creating the cookie. But hey, these cookies are worth every minute.
Here’s the recipe:
First of all, you have to bake an entire batch of brownies. You can either make it homemade or do what I did: use a box mix. It’s such as yummy and tastes just as good when crumbled up in the cookie. I suggest using Pillsbury’s Classic Fudge Mix. However, when making the brownies, make sure to put chocolate chips all over the top of the brownie batter before putting it in the oven and undercook the brownies 1-2 minutes less than the time specified on the box. This way the brownies do not overcook and they stay ooey-gooey on the inside.
Once the brownies, have finished baking, set aside to cool and proceed to the cookie dough making.
The cookie dough ingredients include:
- 2 and 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 and 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- And of course the brownies we made earlier!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat the Crisco and sugars on high in your electric mixture for 2-3 minutes until it appears light and fluffy while a pale brown color. Once this texture has been attained, add the 3 eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined and then add the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, and salt). Try not to make too much of a mess when adding the flour and mix until combined. Then add the chocolate chips and we’re almost ready to go! Finally, cut the brownies into squares and add them all to the dough and mix for 10 seconds. Finish mixing in the brownies with a spoon so as to make the dough a marble dough instead of a complete chocolate brownie takeover! But if that’s what ya want, by all means, go for it!!
Scoop the dough by the tablespoon onto an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes. I like my cookies bigger so I use a tablespoon and a half but it’s your own preference! Once they’re done, take them out, get a glass of milk, and enjoy your wonderful over-the-top chocolate chip cookies!
These cookies are mouth-watering delicious and solve the problem of not knowing if you want a chocolate chip cookie or a brownie for dessert! It’s both! Bon appetit! Xx.
With much love,
