Claudia Fleming's Chocolate Brownie Cookies

  • c

I've recently run into a reference to Claudia Fleming's chocolate brownie cookie recipe, but I don't have the cookbook and can't find it online. I adore chewy soft cookies in lieu of really good brownies and these sound like the perfect cross between. If you have the recipe, would you mind sharing it?

  1. They are at Epicurious, just type in Chocolate Brownie Cookies, they will be the first recipe up. I tried to add the link but it would not take.

    You will need a stand mixer to make them. They require a full 5 minutes of beating. The only leavening comes from the beating.

      I made them with my hand-held mixer and they were absolutely fine. Looked just like the picture, too - shiny and poofy, with a nicely cracked crust..

      I think I beat them for 10 minutes or possibly even shorter.

    2. I made them and wasn't very impressed.

        So did I (years ago). I remember them being good, but not "to die for".

        They were also very fragile until fully cooled, so be careful.

          I actually got the recipe from Chocolatier magazine in 2000. (It may or may not be the same as the one in Epicurious.)

          1. re: Funwithfood

            Yes, I also used the recipe from Chocolatier too.

            Same here! I like so many of her desserts, but the cookies were just ok.

            It may have to do with the quality chocolate you are using. I make these every Christmas for my husband's staff meeting and people look forward to them. I usually omit the chocolate chips and use toasted hazelnuts in them and use Sharffen Berger or Valhrona chocolate.

          4. I have made these cookies many times and have had great success with the recipe. Everyone loves these cookies!!!!! When you pull up the recipe at epicurious, read all of the reviews of the recipe; I often find that these opinions are invaluable!!!!
