Brownie Cookies

If you’re craving a rich, chocolaty cookie, but you’re short on time and you just can’t find the recipe you know you have somewhere OR maybe you want a quick and easy cookie recipe for a pot luck, party or gift, THESE brownie cookies are the perfect solution.

There are only four ingredients….really…only four! It’s brownie mix, eggs and oil mixed together and rolled in powdered sugar. That’s it! I’ve been making these for the past few years and when I do, suddenly my kids and husband appear in the kitchen sniffing the air and smiling when they see what’s baking. Seriously, you gotta make these. But, do yourself a favor and double the recipe. Trust me – they go fast!

1 regular size pkg. brownie mix
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 c. canola or vegetable oil
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Using electric mixer, combine first three ingredients. Form into balls (use a cookie dough scoop if you have one. Roll in bowl of powdered sugar. Place on cookie sheet and bake 12 to 15 minutes.

Another tip: follow this same recipe for snickerdoodles. Just swap out the brownie mix with a spice cake mix, then roll each ball first in melted butter then in a sugar & cinnamon mixture.
