Or, if alphabetical order is important to you: brownie-cookies. Or, if you like to smoosh words together: browkies, crownies, bookies.

This combines my famous (in some circles) brownie recipe with the chocolate chip cookie recipe in the previous post. Ya make the cookie dough and the brownie batter and ya ker-plop the dough into the batter. In the end, it's a pan of brownie and cookie marble treat.

My friend Jessie recently tried one and said "This must be what angels eat."
I responded, "If you're eating one, it must be so!"

Jo Bean's All-Time Favourite Brownies

1 cup butter, very soft
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder (I like Nestle!)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Mix sugar, butter, vanilla, eggs
2. In seperate bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt
3. Combine wet and dry

Chocolate Chip Cookies
(This is the recipe from my previous entry, halved)
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Combine flour, baking soda, salt in small mixing bowl
2. Beat butter, sugars, and vanilla
3. Add egg
4. Gradually add dry mixture

Now, to make these two entities into one!

1. Preheat oven to 190 C (350 F)
2. Pour brownie batter into pan
3. Drop dollops of cookie dough randomly into the batter

4. Bake for quite awhile-- my oven is foolish, but they were in there for a good 45 minutes

(If there's a leetle bit of cookie dough left over, either (a) get it from the bowl into your mouth using your finger or (b) make a little cookie pie like I did!)
