Brownie Cookie Sandwiches

Brownie Cookie Sandwiches ~ The perfect chewy brownie cookie that I filled with frosting and peanut butter!

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.

Whisk your dry, whisk your wet…
