Chocolate Brownie Crookies

Brownie Cookies - Crookies

“Crownies”, my husband says. “You could call ‘em Crownies.”

Me – No, no that sounds too fifties-ish.

“How about Brookies?” he suggests helpfully.

Me – Yug. Sounds like something you’d go fly-fishing for, if you went fly-fishing. Which you don’t.


Me – I give up.  Fine, we’ll call ’em Crookies.

“It really doesn’t matter.  Just so long as you make them.  Now?” he adds hopefully.


Enjoy the BEST of both worlds with this great mash-up of cookies and brownies!


Take them out of the oven when they are dry around edges but still somewhat wet-looking in the middle. They will fall apart if you try to eat them warm (gooey but yummy!), but they are perfect when they cool and even better the next day.  Fantastic!!  Pressing the M&Ms onto the tops, makes them more visible and colorful.

Like it?  Please tell your friends....

I'm hoping this site will really help them.   If you think so too, please take a minute and send them a link.

This French Apple Custard Pie is the perfect holiday dessert! This golden, flaky pie crust is sweet and delicious with crunchy bits of sanding sugar.
