Brownie
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs

Chocolate Chunk Cookie
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (scant)
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup coarsely chopped dark chocolate

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with foil, and grease foil.

To make the brownies, in a medium sized bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and sugar until creamy, about 1-2 minutes. Beat in eggs until well combined, about 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined; spread batter into baking dish.

To make the chocolate chunk cookie, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook for 3-4 minutes, whisking frequently, until butter turns golden brown. Set aside.

  9. I love that you mix chocolate chip cookie dough with things to make several of your desserts! I asked for cheescake with a chocolate chip cookie crust for my birthday... no one could figure out how to make it, so on my birthday I got cheesecake and cookies.

    So will you try the cheescake with chocolate chip cookie crust? :)

  19. I'm loving the ongoing cookie recipes.

    It may not be the secret recipe, but Ina Garten makes a really good lemon cake recipe and it's actually lower in fat than a lot of cakes (I know, surprise surprise coming from Ina) because it's made with yogurt.
