Brownie Chunk Cookies

Tonight there was a marriage, right here in my kitchen...a marriage of brownies and cookies! and it couldn't be more delicious :)

My friends, I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this, but they're just so good I couldn't wait. I came across these Brownie Chunk Cookies from Bon Appetit this afternoon and just knew I had to make them!

First I made the brownies. I needed a recipe that used cocoa powder because that's all I had so I used this recipe without the frosting. It was super easy. 
You need: 

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Melt the butter. Stir in the sugar,  eggs and vanilla.

Add the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt.

Pour into a greased 8 inch pan and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, work on the cookie dough:

Here's what you need:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup walnuts, broken into 1/2-inch pieces (I left these out)
Brownies, cut into chunks
Nonstick vegetable oil spray

I'll spare you the pictures from the beginning of this recipe since they look pretty much like any other cookie dough ever. 

Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add the  eggs and vanilla. Then add the flour, baking soda and salt. 

And now for the marriage. Cut your brownies into small squares. Then add them to the cookie dough:

It reminds me of cookies and cream ice cream! Drop by rounded spoonful onto cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.

Then dig in!!
