I remembered that we had a few packages of Ghiradelli double dark chocolate brownie mix left in a cupboard somewhere (actually, I knew exactly which cupboard they were in...how could I forget?). But I already had my heart set on cookies. And so! These were born:
|I just realized how crummy of a picture this is...I think I'll go clean my lens. And stage it better next time (but those cookies I pulled out were so tempting, I had to eat some...)|
1 regular package brownie mix
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons canola oil
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons water
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Mix everything together. The dough will be relatively stiff and very sticky.
2. Drop in small spoonfulls onto cookie sheet. Warning: the dough is very sticky! You will need to spray your cookie sheet. I used parchment paper and I had difficulty getting them off. I had to peel the paper off and even then a couple cookie bottoms didn't make it.
3. Cook in oven preheated to 350 degrees and cook for 9-11 minutes (mine went for maybe a little over 11 minutes but we have a stupid oven. Test doneness by poking them gently with your finger. The cookie will give but nothing should stick to you. They will be puffy.
4. Let cool about 5-10 minutes on the sheet, then transfer to cooling rack. The cookies will sort of deflate. They are still delicious, and quite chewy. They taste like brownies. Go figure.
