Cookie Dough Brownies
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla flavoring
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 T milk
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 cup flour
1 cup (6 oz) semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp shortening (I sometimes add more if too stiff)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
In mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour, cocoa and salt. Add oil, eggs and vanilla; beat at medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in walnuts if desired. Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350’ for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
For the filling: cream butter and sugars in a mixing bowl. Add milk and vanilla; mix well. Beat in flour. Spread over the brownies. Chill until firm.
For glaze, melt chocolate chips and shortening in a saucepan stirring until smooth (I do it carefully in the microwave). Spread over the filling. Immediately sprinkle with nuts if desired, pressing down slightly.
Note: I think I will make the cookie dough layer (filling) a little thicker the next time, perhaps increase it by half. More is better I think!
Yields 3 dozen.
