Brownie Cookies

These cookies have such a rich chocolate flavor, they taste like brownies fresh out of the oven.  You’ll want to eat more than one of these, so make sure you have a tall glass of milk close by!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped finely


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease two cookie sheets.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt until combined.

In a large bowl, on medium speed, beat together the butter and sugar, until light and fluffy.  Beat in the eggs, one at a time.  Beat in the vanilla.

Gradually stir in the flour mixture until combined.  Stir in the chopped nuts.

Using a measuring tablespoon, drop the batter onto the greased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies have set, but are still soft.  Cool on the cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack.

Makes 25-28 cookies.
