Pillow Cookies

Have you ever had any pillow cookies? I’ve only had them once, but I was immediately smitten. I found them in the bakery section of the Fresh Market sometime last year. They were some sort of sugar cookie wrapped around a brownie center. I immediately went on the hunt for a similar recipe but didn’t have much luck until just a few weeks ago when I was rummaging through some of my aunt’s recipes.

And there it was. A torn out recipe for Chocolate Chip Brownie Pillows.

IMG_2048

Not sugar cookies, but good enough. Better even. And when I read the how-to, it all made sense. I had been throwing around scenarios in my head trying to figure out how the brownie batter and cookie batter all came together to form such soft sugary cookies.

And… It’s easier than you think.

IMG_1947

First… bake up some brownies. You can just use your favorite box mix if you like. Let them cool and cut about ten 1 inch squares. You won’t need the rest for the cookies. I’m sure you can find something to do with the leftovers.

Then you need some chocolate chip cookie dough (recipe below). The dough should be chilled for at least an hour before using.

Each cookie uses about 1/2 cup of dough. Yes, you read that right. One half cup. For each.

And yes, they are ginourmous!

All you do is place the dough on parchment paper and make a pretty big indention in the center. Place the small brownie in the middle and fold the dough around it to form a ball. Then bake. I know, I was a bit skeptical at first, too. But it worked perfectly.

Not convinced? Want to see it again.

Okay. here goes.

IMG_1978

Place 1/2 cup of cookie dough batter on a parchment lined baking sheet.

IMG_1987

Make indentions in the dough and place a 1 inch square brownie in the center of each.

IMG_1992

Smoosh it a little, so the cookie dough surrounds the edges of the brownie.

IMG_2000

Then work the dough around the top to cover the entire brownie and shape them into balls.

Place no more than 6 on a 15 x 20 inch baking sheet at a time because these guys are HUGE!

Bake and voila………

IMG_2050

Giant pillow cookies. Now these are much, much, much larger than the ones I had from the Fresh Market. And actually, the process may not even be similar, but the result reminds me of them. I’m guessing these could go smaller if you like, just use a smaller brownie to start.

But I love how big the are.

IMG_2054

Gigantic.

I guess you want to see the inside.

The magic.

The pillowy goodness.

Let’s face it – you just want to see the brownie.

I know. I know.

Okay, here ya go…

Oh my.

Brownie Pillow Cookies

1 package brownie mix

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 oz. bag miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

Make brownies according to package and let cool. Cut about ten 1 inch squares. Enjoy the remaining brownies. (I used a pan about 8 X 8)

For the chocolate chip cookie dough, beat butter with a mixer until creamy.

Add brown sugar and beat until smooth.

Add eggs, yolk and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a medium bowl and stir together with a wire whisk.

Add flour to butter mixture and beat until combined. Stir in mini chips.

Let dough chill covered in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Use a measuring cup to scoop batter by the 1/2 cup. Since it’s chilled, you may need to pack it with a spoon. Then use the spoon to remove the dough from the cup and place it on parchment paper. Work quickly so the dough remains chilled or either prepare one cookie at a time so the rest of the dough remains cold.

After the dough is on the parchment paper, make an indention and place a 1 inch square brownie in the center. Press the brownie down gently and work the remaining dough around the brownie. You can use your hands to shape the dough into a ball.

During this step, I found it easier to use a piece of parchment paper as a work surface since the dough can get sticky and then I used another piece of parchment paper for the baking sheet. If your dough gets too soft, you can chill the rolled dough balls for a few minutes right before baking.

Prepare six cookies at a time using a large baking sheet (15 X 20) and bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes. Return the remaining dough to the refrigerator until time to bake the second batch.

Cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes and then cool completely on a wire rack.

Makes about ten cookies using a little less than a 1/2 cup of dough for each cookie.

If your cookies start to get too brown before they are done baking, you can place a sheet of aluminum foil over top for the last few minutes.

Recipe adapted slightly from an ad for a Southern Living Cookbook… I think it’s in the Christmas with Southern Living 2009, but not sure.

Enjoy!

P.S. If there was ever a time to use the term “Brookies,” this would be a good one.

  1. I did just make these yesterday. I didnt have the mini chocolate chips and would have been better had I had them but still really good. Ginormous is an understatement. I think I will only get to eat one before hubby eats the rest!

  2. We love those cookies from FM. I tried to replicate them at home too. Instead, I used the basic chocolate chip cookie dough minus the chocolate chips, rolled it into a log and refrigerated. While the cookie dough was chilling, I prepared the brownie dough on the back of the Ghiradelli Sweet Cocoa. I cut 2 slices of cookie dough and sandwiched a tsp of brownie dough in between and sealed. Rather than the cooked brownies in your recipe, I put raw brownie dough in between the layers of cookie dough.

  3. I love pillow cookies with Raspberry jam in the middle of a sugar cookie!

    These, however, look heavenly :)

  4. I used to make something similar but managed to lose my recipe. My recipe was for a peanut butter cookie on the inside and a chocolate one on the outside. Both went into the oven raw and cooked together. I might have to try to recreate that today!

  5. Oh! These look amazingly decadent! I am going to have to try and recreate these in a Gluten-free version!!

  6. I made these today! Only with sugar cookie dough instead of chocolate chip cookie dough. The results were absolutely heavenly. The only bad points were that the brownies made a large lump in the middle of the cookie, and the top of the cookie wouldn’t fully bake! Nonetheless, these were great! Thank you for sharing!

  7. my gosh, these are amazing!

  8. I’ve made a variation of these for years called ‘Chocolate Biscuits of Doom’ You take a nice firm chocolate biscuit recipe, wrap a piece of cadbury snack chocolate in each one as with the brownies and bake. They’re biscuits of doom because it’s hard to resist the temptation to keep eating until you found a pineapple, then a caramel and, okay, next a turkish delight, when I’ve found a turkish delight I’m going to stop eating…. but wait, I haven’t found an oran…. you get the picture….

  9. Fenomenal!!!

    Deliciosas…….. GRACIAS por compartir.
    GarEli

  10. those are so yummy looking.. :)
    by the way, i saw these cupcake earrings and i thought of you!

    http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog_name=FOREVER21&category_name=whatsnew_all&product_id=1000003213&Page=all&pgcount=100

  11. Wow!!! Not a huge chocolate chip cookie fan, but my husband is!!! Pretty sure these cookies just made it to the top of my July 4th dessert list!!!! Amazing!

  12. Those look amazing!! I am new to food blogging and I am constantly looking for new delicious foods to create. I will try this recipe this weekend and report. Can’t wait! Yummmm.

  13. Those look heavenly! Our Fresh Market makes those too. But, they didn’t call them pillow cookies and we have a choice with another filling as well.

    They are divine and perfect with a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. Since, I am no longer living near a Fresh Market, you have provided me with a way to make a little taste of home! :) THANK YOU!!

  14. Yum! I make peanut butter cookies with that same concept. Sort of, I stuff them with milk duds. As they bake they melt into the cookie and make them nice and chewy. Huge hit with my boss.

  15. I actually make pillow cookies for special family events however my recipe is about 50 years old and is filled with raspberry jam!!!!!!! I’m sure my family will love ones that are chocolate filled

  16. mmm….gotto try these….heavenly goodness!

  17. OH MY GOSH! These literally made my mouth drop!

  18. By the way……;)

  19. HOLY COW. Can I be Cookie Monster for a minute or three?

  20. this is genius!! i just baked chocolate chip cookies.. definitely gonna try these!! :)thanks!
    page

  21. Those look amazing! I am going to have to try making these soon! :)

  22. A brownie inside a chocolate chip cookie! Now that is just plain genius and crazy yummy:)

  23. PS: I made your chocolate chip cookie pie a while back and it came out SOOOO good. I wrote about it here:

    http://bontempsbeignet.blogspot.com/2010/05/you-gotta-try-chocolate-chip-cookie-pie.html

    My pictures are pathetic but it came out much much prettier the second time I made it…. I think because I melted the butter instead of having it @ room temp.

  24. ::wiping the drool off my blackberry::

    I must make this!

  25. maybe this is blasphemy on this website, but betty crocker has a mix to make the opposite: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-brownies/eed4b2ac-42b3-4084-93ca-8a5fcda2a29c

  26. That is awesome!!!!!! I must try these!

  27. What a surprise to discover a brownie in the middle. Clever!

  28. wow! this looks so interesting, definately going to try!

  29. Greetings. I made these today and they totally flattened out and had a brownie lump in the middle. I have no idea what I did wrong. Chilled the batter and everything. Any suggestions?

  30. I will definitely have to make these!

  31. These sound awesome! I was thinking of a cheaters way of doing it, perhaps, would be to use a pack of the ready-made Pillsbury brownie dough squares and a tube of chocolate chip cookie dough. The brownie dough is not as liquid as normal brownie mix and may hold together well enough to use raw and bake it all together, saving the step of making the brownies. Either way, I’m gonna make these soon!

  32. Again, you are a genius. Brownies and chocolate chip cookies together. Making these this weekend!

  33. Just made these with my kids. I think my butter was too soft so they spread quite a bit. But, they taste great! I think next time, if I’m feeling lazy, I may just chop up the brownies into tiny pieces and stir them into the cookie batter to make it easier. I definitely made them much smaller, too. As it was they were still huge! Thanks for the fun recipe!

  34. Those cookies are making me hungry!

    XOXO,

    http://outfitidentifier.com/

  35. Had to try this but used Snickerdoodles instead of chocolate chip. Ditched the cinnamon coating and they are to die for. My friends are skipping lunch just so they can have a cookie!! Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  36. My aunt makes a similar cookie, but uses mini snickers bars smooshed inside a peanut butter cookie….yum!

  37. OMG. WOW. I wish I had that recipe on Father’s Day when I made my dad some treats! THESE LOOK AMAZING!! My mouth is watering as we speak.

  38. Those look amazing…I know what I’ll be baking this weekend :o)

  39. I want some pillow cookies! Yum!

  40. omg! now that’s a serious cookie! i HAVE to try this! my kids will be in 7th heaven!!! they will think i am the best mom ever!

  41. Wow these look fabulous! My husband peered over and has begged me to make a batch:)

  42. Wow, these look awesome! And combine two of my favorite things. :)

  43. !! never would have thought of this one! i’m on it this weekend!

  44. AMAAAAAAZING!!!
    I will definately be making these in the near future.

  45. these are in the oven as we speak! definitely would recommend flattening a bit, as stated in the comments. Also, maybe next time I’ll try cooking the brownies in a larger pan so maybe there’s not so much of a “lump”. i don’t know if that would work…???

  46. OHHHH…bakerella!!! losing this last 10lbs just got sooo much harder!!!!!! Giant pillowy brownie cookies?! Too hard to resist!

  47. for me not liking chocolate much( I am a carmel girl) I am drooling in Chocolate heaven. When in the world do you dream all these up?
    I should share with you my white chocolate peanut butter fudge I made on our local morning show. What great fun I had.
    I forgot what show you were on? Carol Devall?
    I love your site!

  48. those look delicious. heavenly i mean. MM MMGOOD

  49. HOLY MOTHER OF ALL THINGS SACRED AND HOLY! I want one of those RIGHT NOW! I must make those soon!
    They remind me of some cookies my SIL makes – take a mini snickers (the little square bites) and cover it in peanut butter cookie dough and bake. YUM!

  50. oh yum… how can you go wrong with that combo?? What do you think about putting these in muffin cups to bake?? Do you think they would cook right?

    Also, as a Texas gal, I was sad to see that Blue Bell ice cream wasn’t on the poll list!

    Love, love, love your blog!!!!! Thanks for sharing all of your yummy ideas.

  51. CRAZY!!!! I have never heard of such a thing – but you better believe I will be making these!!

  52. Bakerella,
    I love you! I do…. I LOVE reading your posts and following your blog, trying some of your recipes and just living vicariously through you… but I must admit, that today, I HATE you! Just a little, tiny bit…. but still, I HATE that you had to post this Delectable post of YUMMINESS!! I’ve been doing soooo well losing weight and I’m half way to my goal and really want to get there by September, but there’s NO WAY with posts like that!!! I’m just going to have to make those!!! Thanks for sharing, really, my FAMILY will thank you!! (My ass will not…) :O)

    Karisma

  53. My 10 year old son just saw your pillow cookies and with a big grin on his face said, “They’re so fat! Can I make some?” Boredom buster #572 has just been born!

  54. Oh my goodness. Those look completely amazing, I can’t wait to try them! I made the chocolate chip cookie brownies from a while back that you posted here and they were amazing. I am loving the deadly sweet combo of chocolate cookies and brownies.

  55. These look amazing! I’m lying in bed about to go to sleep and now all I can think is ‘brownies, chocolate, cookies, butter,’ These thoughts are NOT condusive to sleep, let me tell you!

    Thanks for another delicious and unique recipe!

  56. i’ve been listing down all your recipes..since I became a fan of Bakerella..can’t wait for your book..will it be available here in the Philippines? I hope so,cause I can’t wait to own one!! if ever it’s not availble here I’ve been asking my Aunt who leaves in San Diego to buy me a copy..I’ve been an avid fan of yours!!
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE all your recipes specially the POP’s!!

  57. Ellen – If you do, just make sure the dough is chilled enough so you can work with it.

    Renee – 4 to 5 inches

    Lizcupcakes – they were

    Laura and CTallmage – 10

    Katie 0 – flattening them a bit first helps

    Kathleen – you can use the larger ones, but I think the smaller ones make it a little easier to work with.

    Julie – and I’ve made those too. Delicious!

    Emma – yes indeed.

    Ava – i usually use a basic buttercream. you can add a little milk to make it creamier. Recipe on this post.

    http://www.bakerella.com/finally-i-found-it/

  58. I’m in love too!! Definitely I have to try them!!!!!! My year old will love them, I know I know he is to young yo have chocolate, well you tell him that!!!

    Hello from Mexico!!!

  59. Oh my word! What a fabulous idea…. Only problem is how to not eat them all at once!

  60. Do youhave any recipes on the site for a frosting that i can pipe on to cupcakes for a classic swirl? I am sorry, I know its not relavent but you usually only respond if it is a new post, By the way I AM TOTALY MAKING THESE FOR MY PARTY!!!!!

  61. Oh. My. Gosh. my world is complete.

  62. OH MY is right! These look amazing!!! I so want to smoosh a piece of caramel into the brownie that’s smooshed into the cookies!

  63. NUMMMMMMM!!! I started on a diet a week ago- but it looks like I’m going to have to make some exceptions (and maybe a few more!)

  64. YUM! Can’t wait to try these this week!!

  65. Yummo! I made my first cupcakes from scratch a couple of days ago. They were not as beautiful as yours but far better than what I’ve made before and I used an icing tip rather than spreading on the icing. Everyone commented on how pretty they looked and I have you to thank. So thank you for inspiring me, Bakerella!

  66. “Brookies???…. brookielicious!!!

  67. I have never heard of such a glorious cookie. I think I went into an arrhythmia just reading this post. I’m definitely making these.

  68. mmmmm….yummmmy……wowww….i am speechless!

  69. Hmm. This kind of thing might make Weight Watchers revoke my lifetime membership. It would be worth it, though!

  70. One tip I have found with making these is to press the bownie flat a little then there wo’t be a big mound stckingout of the cookie after it is baked.

  71. My mom made these for us after my daughter had surgery last year. They are fabulous! She made them smaller than the recipe called for, because 1/2 c. cookie dough plus the brownie was a bit too much for us to finish unless the brookies were all we were having for a meal…not that there is anything wrong with cookies for a meal!

  72. I just made these…. mmmmmm….

  73. I know I just posted but after thinking about it..I was trying to remember what these reminded me of. My daughter makes a 9×13″ brownie mix– spreads in pan. Takes prepared cookie dough and drops little balls of cookie dough into the unbaked brownie batter. Then she bakes it and then we EAT it up!!

  74. My next baking project!!!!
    I’m not much of a cake person. Brownies and cookies are my top 2 baking treats! All the better that they are joined together.
    (~~)
    Julie

  75. omg this is the best idea ever!

  76. Thanks for sharing these. I vote for calling them crownies, but that’s just me. :) Can’t wait to try them.

  77. Two of my favorite things. I will be trying this out as soon as I find a little time.

  78. Wow I am hungry now thanks LOL

  79. If it weren’t currently 92 degrees outside, and in the high 70’s inside, I’d be making these right now. They look too good to be true.

  80. I must have to try these. They look so good. THe best of 2 worlds put together.

  81. I’ve heard about pillow candy before… but pillow cookies? OH MY! must try!!!
    thanks for the recipe :)

  82. Totally freakin’ awesome-my two favorite things in one! Woo hoo!!!

  83. YUM! These look like cookie-shaped chocolate heaven *drool*

  84. These look super yummy! I have heard of them only once before, but instead of brownies on the inside it was marshmallows.

  85. too much for me xDDD I just see the cookie and feel like I have eaten tons of them!! sugar overdose in a screen.

    They are surely delicious, but I think about the calories and…

    uum… they are really tempting xD

  86. I’m definitely trying this recipe. Yum!

  87. Is it wrong that I want to use these to make the world’s most decadent ice cream sandwiches? National Ice Cream Day is only a few short weeks away!

  88. OMG….Can’t wait to try these!

  89. These are awesome! Just in time too, I need something to make for my sister’s birthday and for the family 4th of July Party. Thanks Bakerella! xoxo

  90. these remind me of keebler ‘magic middle’ cookies… though i’m sure these are tastier than the elves’ pastries… :)

  91. Oh WOW can’t wait to try those!! Speaking of “brookies” the other ones have changed my life!! I normally add toffee bits and no nuts but this time I did the andes mints instead of toffee and again I’m like a celebrity to all who try them!! Thanks for all the great things you share!!

  92. Genius, pure genius! Those looked yummy even before you baked them :-P

  93. OMG! Thank you so much for the recipe! I just tasted these at the fresh market on Friday!! I can’t wait to make them!

  94. hmmm these look delicious…the bigger the better I say! can’t wait to try some!

  95. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this before! They look delicious!

  96. Oh my…I see those in my near future!

  97. I’m in love too! And I love the term ‘brookies.’ These are big enough that maybe my four kids would be satisfied if I say “Just one!” But then again, with as good as these look, maybe not!

  98. Are you serious? This looks beyond amazing. Probably the most unhealthy thing one could ever eat…but wow. I have got to make these.

  99. and I just made a batch of brownies last night.. hmmm I might just have to try a few of these.. they look amazing.

  100. two words
    OH MY heavens!
    OOPS that was three words

  101. Those look absolutely DELICIOUS!!!!! Will have to try them SOON!!! :)

  102. Can I say I love you! I have had pillow cookies at Fresh Market and I wonder how to make the yumminess at home. I had searched the web and could not believe there was no recipe for the cookie. Thank you for the recipe!

  103. Holy Crow ! My two very best fav’s combined in one ! TERRIFIC ! ! ! ! !

  104. You are so bad for my diet.

  105. Yummy, my kids and I are drooling!

  106. Oh My. I shuddered when I saw the brownie inside, thinking, this really exists? I have to make these.

  107. Oh my ,
    I think I will make these some time this week .
    They look so good !!!

  108. i can not wait to make these.

  109. oh man oh man, I now know what I can bake to break in my new oven… YUM!!!

  110. Yes, yes, yes!!! These look amazing!!!! OMG I’m now craving brownies like you wouldn’t believe!!! Thanks for sharing these!

  111. I am so making these to bring camping this weekend. It’s PERFECT for a lunch on the boat while we go fishing. Who says you gotta bring peanut butter sandwiches?!

  112. Ri. Di. Cu. Lous.
    In the best possible way.
    Making them today!

  113. Hey Bakerella!

    These look wonderful and I think they’re just what the doctor ordered. My boyfriend’s currently in the hospital, so I’m going to start on a batch right now and bring them to him later today.
    One question though: is it essential that the semi-sweet chips be mini?

  114. O…M…G…. ! Divine – I am going to have to try those mmmm!

  115. Seriously – a little bit of heaven right there!

  116. These look wonderful!

  117. Wow!! Looks good. Double the chocolate fun!!

  118. I love those cookies from Fresh Market. Can’t wait to try to make these myself.

  119. OH MY GOODNESS!! These look as spectacular as spectacular can be. Must. make. now.

    Cabin Fever in Vermont

  120. Oh, Bakerella, oh man! Those look SOOOO good! THANKS for sharing, this is a definite keeper recipe!

  121. Those do sound awesome! And almost nothing is better than a HUGE cookie. I’ll bet you could freeze the little squares of brownie and they’d squish down into the cookie better.

  122. WOW! I’m tempted to call in sick at work, and get started on these now! LOL!

  123. OH MY! YUM! I’d love one right now!

  124. Wholly Crow! I didn’t think the Chocolate Chip Cookie (or the brownie) could get any better – but then I saw this. *Drool* Getting a large glass of milk and a “Brookie” right now!

  125. Those look deeelicious!! I can’t wait to experiment with the recipe trying different flavors of cookie dough. Thanks for sharing!!

  126. Hello Cookies! I’ll be testing this recipe out soon! Thanks!

  127. Oh. My. Oh oh my. We must – yes – I think we must make these. Excuse me while I turn on my oven…oh my my my. My heart is racing with delight.

  128. I was SO happy to see this post!!! I too have been smitten by those Fresh Market Pillow cookies and have spent much time searching for recipes and imagining how you would create them. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

  129. I saw a recipe for pillow cookies with marshmallows in the middle just last night, and almost made them, except 1) I didn’t have any white mini-marshmallows (just the multicolor ones) and 2) I didn’t have time to freeze the marshmallows beforehand. But I am definitely going to try it soon. They were chocolate cookies with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows…but wouldn’t it be amazing if you could figure out how to add graham crackers to it and make smores cookies? Yum!

    These look fantastic, though, and actually just the chocolate chip cookie part looks amazing. I’m always on the lookout for “the best” chocolate chip cookie. I am definitely going to try them! Thanks!

  130. Wow! Who would’ve thunk to put a brownie in a cookie? The second best ‘invention’ ever.
    Beautiful job!

  131. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

  132. Oh.My.Word. These look amazing!

  133. I am always a fan of cross-breeding desserts! yummy!

    party inspiration

  134. Wow! These are amazing! I can’t wait to try these. Thank you so much for sharing. :)

  135. For the love of Jesus… I’m making tonight!!!

  136. I have never heard of this type of cookie before, but they look and sound absolutey amazing! Brownies and cookies all rolled into one…YUM!

  137. OMG! Those look just heavenly! Thanks for sharing that, it will surely be my next baked item!

  138. Yay! You took the two things I make the most around here – chocolate chip cookies and brownies – and combined them. Well, your recipe did. Thanks for sharing. They look delicious.

  139. Wowza! I bet those are so scrumptious!

  140. Is DROOL an appropriate comment? These look absolutely amazing. I don’t think I’ll be satisfied making regular cookies again!

  141. These look amazing!!! And I was going to try to be good this week ;)

  142. I should have stopped scrolling after the 2nd picture when I realized what was about to happen! I might be skipping my next weight watchers weigh in!

  143. MUST try these!!! How many cookies does this recipe make though?? Would like to make for a 4th of July get-together I am having and need to know if I need to make several batches. Thanks!!

  144. Oh my gosh, what an excellent concept! I’m very tempted to try them, but I’m afriad I would eat them all…

  145. Holy moly! I’m glad my family is not up to look at these yet otherwise, I’d have to be already be in the fridge taking out the eggs! Thank you, again, sweet Bakerella for wonderful inspiration, thank you for sharing your passion and of course, for being you!!

  146. I’ve made these before and even as awkward as mine looked (giant lump in the middle thanks to an oversized brownie) I actually thought they tasted BETTER than Fresh Market’s version.
    And these ARE giant! But we all know that bigger means better. :)

  147. These are to die for!!!

  148. Oh wow these look amazingly good, i love the term brookies hehe, i think i may have to try these. Brownies & cookies together sounds like heaven!

  149. The fresh market here puts an almond mixture in the middle of the pillow cookies similar to marzipan, but not quite as dense. It is divine.

  150. These sound incredibly fabulous!

  151. Oh awesomeness! Those are my kind of pillows!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipes, I can’t wait to try them out.

  152. I love it when you get a surprise in the middle:)

  153. Mouth watering goodness!!!!

  154. I am definitely going to try those. Yummy!!

  155. Whoa! Those look like ginormous pillows of delish! Insert mouth watering gaze here. Brookies…love it!

  156. I’ve heard of stuffing peanut butter cookies with chunks of your favorite candy bar or peanut butter cups… but chocolate chip cookie dough with a brownie? that’s genius!

  157. I have to take something fro a bake sale and this is perfect for it :)!!!!!

  158. Looks amazing! Wow!

  159. Oh, a question: for how many cookies is this recipe? I couldn’t find it :)

  160. They look as big as your hand in those final shots! These look so yummy. Going to have to give them a try.!!

  161. Wow, I just love these! It makes me hungry :) I think I’ll make these for me and my collegues. They keep ask me when I make them something jummy, this is jummy enough i suppose =D

  162. I really don’t know how to keep my waistline where its supposed to be if you keep posting goodies such as these! I’m SO gonna try them out this weekend!

  163. yum yum yum !

  164. Uuuu, I haven’t even tried to make these yet but my wheels are already turning…what about different combinations, like blondies in the middle and a peanut butter cookie on the outside, or a peanut butter cookie on the outside with a brownie in the middle or…oR….OR….I gotta make me some of these!!

  165. I’d like to lay my head on these pillows now. :)

  166. yummmmmmyyyy. I want this pillow…. will it take away my spondolitis?? I think it would definitely.

  167. If there was a bed with these for pillows, I think I’d just sleep all day.

  168. I am definitely making these. Nom.

  169. I can’t wait to make these! I’m so very excited! I’ve made brownie/cookie bars, but these take it to the next level! I just made a million (at least it felt like it.. 13 hours in the kitchen yesterday) cupcakes (mint mojito, chai latte, and strawberry nutella cupcakes to be exact) for a baby shower, and we still have a few leftovers. But my guess is that I will be trying this out… this weekend? Yep this weekend

  170. Wow! Those are amazing and definitely going to the top of my list.

  171. Making these tomorrow!!!!!!!!!! They look AMAZING!!!

  172. Wow! I love brownie infused goods, like brownie mosaic cheesecake! Can’t wait to try these out!

  173. these look ridiculously delicious–i’m going to try to make these goodies sometime in the next week :) thanks for the recipe!

  174. so, how big is big? Diameter? Can you eat more than one? ;)

    They look great!

  175. OMG. Think I will be making these in the near future. For sure.

  176. these look great!

  177. omg.. want. right. now.

  178. yes for brookies! i actually tried it last time and i liked it.. this one i think, will be another winner.. yum!

  179. YUM! This is just what I needed to pick me up on a long Monday afternoon – I now officially have the munchies! Can’t wait to get baking on the weekend x

  180. My two favorite flavors all together, oh what can I say. I think I’m in LOVE!

  181. Do you think it would be possible to use cookie mix for the cookie part? These look absolutely delectable, by the way!

  182. Making these asap!

  183. Oh my goodness. They look so dreamy! What a genius idea!
    xx

  184. Duh-Ang.

    These will be the next cookies I made. Sadly (ha) I just made a huge batch of cookies tonight………

  185. how come nobody ever thought of this? i might be so moved to add these to what i promised for my sister’s engagement get-together. 3 of my faves side by side : brownies, blondies, brookies :D

  186. Oh man. I really, really wish I didn’t have gestational diabetes, or I’d be making these like, now. Even though it’s 11 PM.

  187. Yum-yum… Those look pretty good!

  188. Whoa, hello heaven!

  189. I do this all the time only I put bite size snickers in the middle. They are delicious! I’ve tried with the mini peanut butter cups but its not as good as snickers. I may just try the brownies. My hubby would be in heaven.

  190. Another recipe to add to my to-bake list! Love the idea of putting brownies in cookies.

  191. I have never ever heard of these, but now I have wondered how such an amazing thing has escaped me!

  192. YUM! Oh yeah, gotta try these ones.

  193. That looks good. I love your recipes.=)

  194. Whaaaaaaaat??? That’s insane!! But in such a good way! I would have NEVER thought of it. Genius! I’m gonna try it.

  195. Ohhh dear, these look incredible!! My boyfriend will love these.
