Can you think of anything that could possibly be a yummier combination than brownies & uncooked cookie dough??? I think not! I got this idea at from the National Cookie Network which led me to Let's Get Cookin' that had the recipe. Once I saw it I had to try it and it was DIVINE!! I ended up making the non-GF brownies too thick so the GF ones tasted the best. I used my version of Carol Fenster's brownie and it is delicious! Then I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe to make the dough. I realized as I wrote this I have never posted these two recipes, a travesty that MUST be addressed. Look for individual posts of these in the near future (after my daughter finishes these brownies and the Chocolate Cookies to Die For that are currently in the freezer).
I do have to admit that the original recipe called for a 9x13 pan of brownies, but my GF brownie recipe makes an 8x8 pan. I didn't really want to do much math so I just baked it in an 11x7 pan and then had a little thicker cookie dough, nothing bad about that.
If you have your own chocolate chip cookie dough you love just take the recipe and use the same amount of butter, sugars, vanilla, salt & flour. Then sub 1/4 C milk for each egg. Don't use the baking soda or powder since they are a part of the recipe to help the cookies bake well. You also don't need xanthan gum since it also helps the BAKED cookie hold together and the dough doesn't need that.
Cookie Dough Brownies (printer friendly)
3/4 C butter, softened (or substitute)
3/4 C brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt (opt.**)
1/3 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C milk (or substitute - I'd use coconut for this recipe)
1 2/3 C flour
1 C chocolate chips - mini would be best,
3/4 C flaked coconut
3/4 C walnuts, chopped
1. Allow your brownies to cool.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, sugars, salt (if using), and vanilla. Beat in the milk. Gradually add the flour until it is fully mixed.
3. Add chips, coconut and walnuts.
4. Spread dough over the brownies
I plopped the dough on and then spread it out.
5. Refrigerate until the dough is firm.
**I used salted butter so I omitted the salt. If using unsalted butter you will probably want to add salt.
