ABC - February 2017: The Browniest Cookies

This month's ABC recipe was fun, quick and delicious: The Browniest Cookies from the blog Smitten Kitchen. Fearing that the cookies would be "too chocolate-y", I made only half the recipe because I didn't want to be "stuck" eating all of them :) You may remember that hubby is not a huge (dark) chocolate fan.

Oh so delicious!

I didn't change much in the recipe this time. Rather than using all chocolate chips, I decided to use mini chocolate chips and butterscotch chips (the latter is to cut some of the "dark chocolate" taste in the cookie).

The cookie dough is very forgiving. I baked a couple cookies the same night, and baked the rest 5 days later. No issues whatsoever.

Bon Appetit!

Final thoughts/tips:

  • Hubby loved these cookies. His first cookie was still slightly warm and so it was a bit soft still, and therefore fragile (and messy to eat). His second cookie was cooled long enough were it was more sturdy. He gave it a 9 out of 10 rating!
  • I loved how chocolatey and fudgy these cookies were. The butterscotch chips gave it a nice caramel flavor. These cookies would probably be good without adding any chips. Given how easy they were to make, I'll definitely be making these again.
  • Size: I made small cookies, using my "2 tsp" cookie scoop. This resulted in almost 25 cookies.

  1. Our husbands must be soul brothers - no great dark chocolate fans, but, nevertheless, not able to resist the allure of a warm cookie, messy or not :)
