Before I start telling you a little about these cookies, doesn’t the photo above just make you want to drool. I mean what is better than chocolate cookies and a big glass of milk? It reminds me of being a kid, when life was so simple and carefree. Oh yeah, and you could eat things like this without having to work it off at the gym for 2 weeks. Childhood is such an amazing part of life!
There are two things you should know about me (some of you may already know) first is that I love cookies and second is that I love chocolate! Cookies are one of my weaknesses, especially chocolate chip cookies. Chocolate chip cookies are probably my favorite thing on the planet to eat…ok, all this talk about chocolate chip cookies and now I am going to have to go make some!
Not only do I love cookies, but brownies are also very high up on my favorites list and these cookies are the best of both worlds. They have the chocolaty flavor and chewy center like a brownie and the shape and outside texture of a cookie. They also get that wonderful flaky texture on the outside like on the top of a brownie. I made mine without nuts, but these would be excellent with any of your favorite nuts. However you make them, I suggest washing them down with a big glass of milk!
