During the Christmas season, friends of ours participate in the Living Nativity that is presented by their church. At the end, cookies are provided for all. Last year over 14,000 people attended...that's a lot of cookies! I volunteered to bake some this year to help out. So I made these. The recipe comes from a book called "Ideal Cookie Cookbook" which was published in 1984. I got it as a freebie when I signed up for weekly delivery of the Courier Post...way back when I first got married. I don't know how I missed this recipe until now!
Rich Chocolate Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen.
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup water
1 package (15.5 oz.) brownie mix
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla
In a large mixing bowl, blend eggs and water. Stir in brownie mix, baking soda, flour and vanilla; blend well. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto a greased and floured cookie sheet. (I didn't flour mine.) Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet to wire rack to cool.
They are delicious! For those like me, who think the corner pieces of brownies are the best because they're crunchy, these are amazing. Crunchy on the edges, soft in the middle. Try them...they're easy. FuriousBall, do you want some?
And here's Cheyenne, trying to get into the Christmas spirit. It's not working....
