Brownieesque cookies

Well folks Friday is finally upon us. For those who thought this weekend could not get here fast enough, me included, your patience has paid off. Let the fun begin! Except for me, I have to work tomorrow. Boo! But my Friday is actually Saturday because I have Sunday and Monday off. Yeah! I cannot wait until Sunday funday. My hubby, one of my best girlfriends and her man and I are going to a Diamondback's game:) We have been planning this outing for what seems like forever and it's finally time.

We have big plans, the four of us, first stop before game time is Alice Cooper's Cooperstown. We  all want that giant hot dog he has on his menu. Erin and I are going to share one because it is huge! I will make sure I take pictures of it because seeing is believing. I can almost taste it now. We are going to wash down this monstrosity with some beverages of course, then off to the game:) I hope we win!

I know you did not think I was done with the dessert posts for the week. Hee hee! My hubby has been craving chocolate and don't think he has been quiet about it either. He has been dropping some hints if you know what I mean? Anyway, I saw a recipe on the Brown Eyed Baker blog claiming to be better than brownie cookies. Once I saw this claim I knew I had to make these cookies. What could be better than a cookie brownie? The recipe was adapted from another blogger's website Culinography. I have to say these cookies were delicious! They were, in my opinion , better than brownies because they were in smaller portions and a lot neater to bake:)

I give these cookies an A because they lived up to their name.
Look at these beauties! Aren't they calling your name?
These will make anyone's weekend better and if it is not your Friday as well, these will make it feel like it.

Better than brownie chocolate cookies
from the brown eyed baker

2 2/3 c of bittersweet chocolate chopped ( I used ghirardellis chocolate chips)
4 T unsalted butter room temperature
4 eggs
1 1/3c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1c of semisweet or bittersweet chocolate

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats. Preheat oven to 350F. Put 2 2/3c of chocolate in a heat proof bowl set over barely simmering water and melt chocolate, stirring occasionally.

Stir together eggs, vanilla and sugar while chocolate melts and then set aside.
In a small bowl mix together flour and baking powder.

Add melted chocolate to the egg mixture and stir until combined. Slowly add the flour mixture and fold until combined.

When all the flour is incorporated stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop 1 1/2 T of dough onto cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 -12 minutes or until firm on the outside. Do not overcook. Let cool on baking sheet. Enjoy!

I hope you have great plans for this weekend:)
