Get ready for a cookie experience like no other with our Nutty Brownie Cookies. These delectable treats combine the rich, fudgy goodness of brownies with the satisfying crunch of nuts, creating a symphony of flavors in every bite. Simple to make and utterly indulgent, these cookies are bound to become a staple in your dessert repertoire.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup dairy-free butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chopped cooled brownies (about 1/2 a box mix recipe), or check out my brownie recipes on my page
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans work best)

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Instructions:

  1. Chill Those Brownies:
    Ensure your brownies are completely chilled before starting. If you need to make them beforehand, pop them in the freezer for about 30-45 minutes until they firm up.
  2. Cream and Whisk:
    In the bowl of your electric mixer, cream together the dairy-free butter and sugar until smooth. Add in the plant-based milk and vanilla extract, giving it another whisk.
  3. Combine Dry Ingredients:
    Incorporate the flour, baking soda, and salt into the mix. Stir until well combined.
  4. Brownie and Nut Fusion:
    Introduce the star ingredients – the chopped brownie pieces and nuts. Turn on your electric mixer for around 10-15 seconds, or until the dough is just combined.
  5. Roll and Chill:
    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the dough into 6 parts, then, using your hands, roll each portion into balls and place them on the baking sheet. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  6. Preheat and Bake:
    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F while the dough chills. Once ready, bake the cookies for 14-16 minutes. Let them cool for at least 10 minutes before indulging in their gooey goodness.

Frequently Asked Questions: Nutty Brownie Cookies Edition

1. Can I use any type of nuts in these cookies?
Absolutely! While walnuts or pecans are recommended for their classic pairing with brownies, feel free to experiment with your favorite nuts for a personalized touch.

2. Can I use store-bought brownies for this recipe?
Certainly! If you’re short on time, store-bought brownies work just as well. Ensure they’re chilled before incorporating them into the cookie dough.

3. Can I freeze the cookie dough for later use?
Yes, you can! After rolling the dough into balls, place them in the freezer on a tray until solid. Once frozen, transfer the dough balls to a sealed container. When ready to bake, simply place them on a prepared baking sheet and follow the usual baking instructions, adding a couple of extra minutes.

4. How long can I store these cookies?
These cookies stay fresh for up to a week when stored in an airtight container at room temperature. For longer storage, you can freeze the baked cookies for up to three months.

5. Can I skip the chilling step for the dough?
Chilling the dough is recommended as it helps solidify the fats, resulting in cookies with a better texture. It also enhances the flavors. However, if you’re short on time, a minimal chill (about 15-20 minutes) can still yield satisfactory results.

6. Can I make these cookies gluten-free?
Certainly! Substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend of your choice. Ensure that your brownie mix is also gluten-free if you’re using a pre-made mix.

7. How do I prevent the cookies from spreading too much during baking?
Chilling the dough adequately helps control spreading. If you notice your cookies spreading too much, try chilling the dough for a bit longer before baking.

8. Can I double the recipe?
Absolutely! Feel free to double or even triple the recipe to suit your needs. Just make sure to adjust the baking time accordingly, keeping an eye on the edges for that perfect golden finish.

      Hi! Yes, all of my cookie recipes (unless noted otherwise) makes six LARGE cookies. You can make 12 smaller cookies but you’ll need to lower the baking time to 12-14 minutes.
