Brownie Cookie Sandwiches

cookies

These Brownie Cookie Sandwiches are made with a perfectly chewy brownie cookie, loaded with melted chocolate and chips. Every cookie is like the edge piece of a brownie!

There seem to be two types of people in this world…the people who like the middle pieces of a pan of brownies and those who like the edges pieces.

I am a brownie innards girl all.the.way.

The edges are just a side effect.

 

I especially like brownie middles when they are ooey-gooey-almost-raw-won’t-even-stay-in-one-piece.

BUT the edges seem to have this weird cult following.

I mean they made a WHOLE PAN to make just edge pieces.

 

How about a whole pan to make just MIDDLE pieces? Hmm? HMMM????

Someone needs to figure out that little bit of baking arithmetic.

 

Anyhow..I have finally found the perfect treat that will satisfy BOTH types.

Brownie Cookies.

The are chewy, but also gooey…the tops are crackly and they are loaded with chocolate.

 

AND I made them into Brownie Cookie Sandwiches, because nothing beats a good brownie…except one with peanut butter and frosting.

Sometimes I really feel like I can’t get any smarter.

I go through phases with my brownie preferences, but most of the time, it’s the middle part. These look delicious!

INNARDS!! 100% all the way!
I literally just texted a friend about this last night. I told her a brownie “edges pan” is my worst nightmare. Haha.
And I’m a “eat all the cream filling out of sandwich cookies” girl too.

I love the brownie innards as well! I haven’t used my back in the day bakery book in quite awhile. I’m definitely going to dig it back out after looking at these. YUMMM

I’m a brownie middle person, so I would be all over a pan that makes middles only!! Someone better get on that!

Shashi @ RunninSrilankan

Those cookies are gorgeous on their own – but with peanut butter and frosting – good golly – they are simply irresistible!

I am definitely a middle of the pan person! I have been known to just trip 1 inch off the outside of the pan, so every piece is the “middle”

Made these for a church function I made some as shown with both the white frosting and peanut butter, some with chocolate frosting and some with just the cookie. They went over very well.
