Cookies with Brownie Center

  • Already preparted (store bought) cookie dough
  • Box of brownie mix

Bake regular chocolate brownies as directed on box.  Once the brownies are cooked and cooled, cut them into small squares (about 1 inch squares).  Take 2 slices of cookie dough and roll into 2 balls and flatten.  Place brownie in the center of the flattened cookie dough of 1 cookie and place the other cookie dough slice on top.  Mash the 2 slices with the brownie in the center together (especially around the sides).  You don't want to smash it too much to wear the brownie in the center is completely crumbled, but enough to wear that square brownie isn't poking out of the cookie once it is baked.  Bake the cookies with the brownie center 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes depending on how large you make your cookies (until golden brown).
