Brownie Cookies

Both my sisters are a huge fan of brownies and when I made these cookies, they scarfed it down.  Personally I thought it was good, but not that great.  Have you guys tried it?  Let me know how it turns out for you by commenting on the bottom.  Happy baking!

    Hey Lainey!
    I love your website and videos!
    I have a question: When I made the dough it wasn’t very doughy for me. It was more like a brownie batter. I don’t know what happened! Can you help me with it?

    • Hi Patricia,
      Thank you!!
      Oh no, I’m sorry that happened. Sometimes when I bake, if I don’t do the EXACT measurements it will become a brownie batter. However for this recipe, if it is a little bit runny it’s ok.

  3. These are so yummy Lainey! I added a little bit of flour and decreased the amount of butter and sugar. It turned out just fine. After me and my family tried it I was so excited to try your other recipe. Thank you!!

    • Hi Sophia!! YEY! I’m so happy!! Thank you for sharing and please let me know how the other recipes turned out!! Also I would love to see pictures! 😀

    • I’m So happy you and your family enjoyed that Sophia! <3 <3 Sorry I responded super late!

  4. What brand of butter you use? Thank you.

    • Hi Mery, I use Costco brand butter, because it’s cheaper for me to buy in bulk (since I bake A LOT). 🙂 What do you use?

    • To be honest I use whatever is at my grocery store.. I usually don’t get the same ones.. As long as all of them are unsalted butter! <3 Sorry I responded super late!

    Hello Lainey:D
    I love all of your recipes so much! Last time I made brownie cookies with my friends but we failed… Because I didn’t notice that you use ‘cup’ instead of ‘spoon’! Anyway, this time I wanna try it again! And here is a question, how can I keep my brownie cookies? Can I just put them under room temperature or I have to put them into the refrigerator? And how many days they can be retain? Thank you very much, Lainey:D
