I asked my goddaughter Sara what treat I could bring for her 9th birthday party and she said “sugar cookies stuffed with brownies. ” ask and ye shall receive. I used a brownie mix (shhhh. Don’t tell) and my Swig sugar cookie recipe. The cookie dough can be a little soft, so you may want to add a little extra flour to the dough or flour your hands when stuffing the dough with the brownies to make the process easier.
I always have this issue when I make treats. I have too much cookie dough, brownies, frosting etc. This time I had some leftover brownies, so I whipped up a little frosting and made suzy q’s in brownie form. (Pic at end of blog)
Onto the brownie stuffed sugar cookies!
Ingredients – brownies (either a mix or your favorite recipe), prepared as directed and cooled. I cut them into 24 squares and cut off any edges.
Cookies – 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup oil, 1/2 cup + 1/8 cup sugar, 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup powdered sugar, 1 egg, 2 1/2 tsp water, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 3/4 cups flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp cream of tartar, 1/4 tsp salt.
Directions – mix butter, oil, sugar and powdered sugar. Add egg, water and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients. Using floured hands, scoop out 3 tbs cookie dough and form around each brownie. Chill 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners, stagger 8 cookies to a sheet. Bake 10 to 11 minutes (lightly golden on bottom). Let cool on sheet 5 minutes. Remove from sheet and cool completely. Store in covered container.
Here are my suzy q brownies!
