My mommy's group had a cookie bake-off for the holidays last Christmas then exchanged recipes. I thought these cookies were really really yummy and needed to input it (finally--6 mos later) before I lost the recipe! Hope you enjoy.
- In a large bowl, combine brownie mix and flour. Add oil, egg, and water; mix well. Add chips and nuts.
- Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet.
- Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until tops of cookies begin to crack. Do not over bake. Immediately remove to cooling rack. Cool before serving (if you can restrain yourself).
I substitute toffee chips for the nuts in these and whenever I give them to someone new I get begged for the recipe. SO GOOD. I think the people who had issue with the batter being runny might have used the wrong sized mix. The ones that are around 19oz are usually labled 'Family Size' or '9x13'. Everytime I've made these it's been so thick I had to use my heavy-duty wooden spoon to stir.
Sounds like a good cookie, but when I made them, the batter was way too runny to roll into balls. Maybe it needs to be cooled before hand? The pictures and reviews were good but it just doesn't seem feasible.
I thought this recipe was great. I also did not have the problem the other reviewers had in regards to the batter being too wet. In fact, the only thing I would change is for the recipe to say flatten the dough balls a bit when you put them on the baking sheet because they do not spread at all.
