Brownie Roll-Out Cookies

Happy Valentine’s Day!

These cookies are what would happen if traditional roll-out sugar cookies married brownies and they had a baby. A brownie roll-out cookie baby. The are thick and sturdy but still soft and chewy. Deb (from Smitten Kitchen) says you can roll them 1/8″ or 1/4″ thick, but I agree with her that I like them better on thicker side. You will really be impressed with how well they roll-out and cut (unless of course you’re using XOXO cookie cutters which happen to be the biggest PIA ever).

For Valentine’s day I decided to skip the icing/frosting and leave ‘em naked! ;) But they are really ideal for royal icing. They would also make for an excellent ice cream sandwich cookie! Or the perfect pair for a cherry buttercream! Or you could follow Jesse’s lead and smear one with peanut butter then top with a second cookie. You really can’t go wrong with these versatile little cookies.

  1. LOVE everything about these! Hope you & Jesse have a lovely Valentine’s Day! :)

  2. Happy Valentine’s Day! This sounds like the perfect dessert for those of us who can never decide if they want either a brownie or a cookie. Now we can have both!

  3. Love these, and I’ve been wanting to make these cookies, too! I love your new purple prop board! Hope you and Jesse have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

  4. What a fabulous idea! I’m a brownie gal, myself, and would be ALL over these!

  5. I made these tonight, the dough was very thick and challenged my mixer quite a bit, then when I attempted to roll the dough out it was very crumbly. Also I didn’t get even two dozen out of the batch. They were delicious though. Any hints on how to solve these issues?

    • Because we can all measure things just a little bit differently, I can see how the dough could take on different textures. If this were to happen to happen to me, I would probably try adding a tablespoon or so of milk.
