#Cookie Dough Brownies from the Cat Cafe - a #holiday #recipe #Christmas2021

The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series is set at a café with its own bakery, so of course I mention several amazing baked goods! 

This recipes is included at the back of the first novel. I add a from-scratch brownie recipe there, but here's the quicker version.

Cookie Dough Brownies

Dense, chewy chocolate brownies are so good. But chocolate chip cookies are amazing too. How do you decide which to make? With this recipe, you don't need to choose! A rich brownie layer is topped with raw chocolate chip cookie dough.

Brownie Layer
Your favorite brownie recipe or boxed mix. (I prefer Ghirardelli mix), prepared and bake as directed.

Cookie Dough Layer
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Prepare the brownies as directed in your recipe or on the box.

2. Make the cookie dough layer: Cream the butter and both sugars in a mixing bowl. Blend in the milk and vanilla. Blend in the flour. Stir in the chocolate chips.

3. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough over the cooled brownies. Spread the cookie dough layer evenly. Cut the brownies into squares or bars and store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Tip: Food safety experts suggest you don't eat raw cookie dough, because raw eggs can lead to food poisoning. The cookie dough layer here does not contain eggs.
