Brownie Cookies

  • 2 blocks (2 oz., weight) baking chocolate (unsweetened or bittersweet)
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 whole large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stir, and let it cool.

Use a hand mixer to mix the butter and sugar together until fluffy and combined. With the mixer on low, slowly drizzle in the cooled chocolate. Scrape the bowl and mix again. Mix in the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla. Scrape the bowl once more and mix.

Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir it together, then add it in scoops to the mixing bowl with the mixer on low. Scrape the bowl once and mix one final time until all combined.

Scoop generous tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 11 minutes until puffy and set.

Remove them from the oven, let them sit on the pan for 1 to 2 minutes, then remove them to a baking rack to cool completely. Once cool, sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.
