I made some brownies and didn’t want to bring in “just brownies” to work, so I decided to stuff most of them in sugar cookies. I say most because I ran out of cookie dough, so a few “just brownies” will arrive with me tomorrow morning.
Reminders – scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Also, preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking, so your oven cycles to the right temp.
One pan of brownies, baked, cooled and cut in squares
14 tbs butter softened
2 tbs crisco
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. In a bowl, cream butter, crisco, and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough. Divide in half. Flatten one half. Place a brownie square on top. Flatten other half and place on top of brownie square. Completely cover brownie with dough. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheet. I fit 8 on a sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. (Lightly golden on bottom) cool completely. Store in covered container.
Thank you for stopping by today. I wish you a wonderful day filled with peace, love and happiness. Remember to be kind. Your kindness might be just what someone needs in their day.
I tried to drown my sorrows from Monday night Football into baking. I opted for peanut butter cookies, stuffed with brownies and topped with melted Hershey kisses. They made the house smell wonderful, but in the end, I am still mad about the game and probably will be until Friday. Poor Rob and Gracie.

These are a super easy treat, guaranteed to wow anyone! I used brownies to stuff these cookies. And I cut them in 2 inch squares. You can also use Oreos, mini candy bars, etc. I used a white cake mix, but feel free to mix it up. These cookies can be made in no time!
1 cake mix, any flavor
1/3 cup oil
2 to 4 tbs water
Oreos, cut up brownies, mini candy bars etc
Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. In a bowl, combine cake mix, egg, oil and enough water so the dough comes together and you can work with it. Scoop out 1 1/2 tbs dough, slightly flatten. Place an oreo/brownie Square, mini candy on top. Scoop out another 1 1/2 tbs dough, slightly flatten. Place on top of oreo/brownie Square, mini candy etc. Mould dough around it. Scatter on a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. Bake 10 minutes. They will seem undercooked, but should be light golden on the bottom. Cool completley.
