I have totally fallen in-love with these cookies. Honestly, I would eat a brownie over a piece of cake, any day. I think it’s a texture thing. I can’t think of a more amazing dessert than a chewy, dense and chocolatey brownie. So needless to say, these cookies were heaven to me.
I love how simple they are to make, and the flavor is to-die-for. I topped them off with some cream cheese frosting and it shot them right up to the next level! They were so soft and so totally delicious.
Now excuse me, while I go make another batch…
Brownie Mix Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting
1 package (18.3 ounce) Fudge Brownie mix ( I used Betty Crocker)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted then cooled
1-2 Tablespoons water
Directions: Whisk together the brownie mix and flour in a large bowl. Stir in the eggs until combined, then butter and water. Batter will be thick. Cover and refrigerate one hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, spacing at least 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack. Let cool cookies cool completely before frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
5 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
3 Tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
Directions: Cream together the cream cheese and butter with a hand mixer on medium speed. Add in the vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Beat until soft and creamy. Spread frosting on cooled cookies.
