  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  1. For the brownies:
  2. Preheat the oven to 325°. Line a 9" x 13" baking pan with parchment and set aside.
  3. Place the butter and chocolate in a large microwaveable bowl. Microwave just until the mixture is melted. Whisk until it is completely mixed. Cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Whisk in the sugar. Whisk in the eggs followed by the vanilla.
  5. Lastly, whisk in the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  6. For the chocolate chip cookie dough:
  7. Place the butter, sugar and brown sugar into a mixing bowl. Beat until creamy, about three minutes, scraping the bowl down as necessary. Add the egg followed by the vanilla.
  8. Blend in the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  9. Spread half of the brownie batter onto the bottom of the parchment paper lined pan. Use a small cookie dough scoop to transfer the cookie dough over the brownie batter.
  10. Spoon the remaining brownie batter over the cookie dough. If it does not cover the dough, use a spoon to gently cover the dough with brownie batter.
  11. Bake at 325° for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
  12. Cut into squares and serve.
