I love brownies, sandwich cookies AND chocolate chip cookie dough so when I saw this recipe on Tracey’s Culinary Adventures blog, I thought, “Heavenly, I must bake and EAT these cookies!”  Every Thursday night, I wind down from a busy week and bake my heart out.  On Friday afternoons,  I make the rounds around the office, say hello to my coworkers and hand out baked goods.  I’m still relatively new to New York and am somewhat of an introvert, so this is a fantastic opportunity for me to get to know people in a relaxed manner and enjoy good eats along the way.

Cookie Ingredients:

Brownie Cookies

1 1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

3/4 packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, whisk the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Mix in the vanilla.

With the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients in two addition, beating until just combined. The batter will be very thick.

Portion the dough into 1 -1 1/2 tablespoon balls. Place them on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. With damp fingers, slightly flatten the balls of dough.

Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are set and the tops are puffed and cracked (but still soft).

To make the filling:

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.

To assemble the sandwiches:

Match the cookies in pairs by size.

Scoop about 2-3 tablespoons of the filling onto the flat side of one of the cookies in each pair.

Put the other cookie on top and press to push the filling to the edges.

Makes about 20 sandwich cookies
