Chocolate Brownie Roll-Out Cookies

Chocolate Brownie Roll-Out Cookies

At the moment, my kids are currently enamored by all things Harry Potter. To score some major brownie points with them (pun 100% intended), we magically created Chocolate Brownie Roll-Out Cookies or “Brookies.”  (Sorry, but when I work with my kids, the cheesey factor skyrockets).  Brookies are a warm brownie and a delicious cookie – all in one!  They’re just about irresistible.

A big must in this recipe is using a high quality cocoa, making this recipe reminiscent of the brownies-of–your-childhood.  For most roll-out doughs, I like to chill / roll and cut / then chill again. When you are ready, bake them direct from freezer to oven.  Yep, freezer to oven.

Finish with sanding sugar and a simple icing recipe that will make these Brookies pop!  If you’re wondering, I’m still working on the spell to make the messy part of clean-up – disappear!

Note: Once you cut your cookies into your desired shapes, wrap and place in freezer. Then, bake off the next day. Move from freezer to oven and the shapes will retain their integrity during the baking process. This is how you get those perfectly shaped cut-out cookies!
