Is it a brownie or a cookie? Well, it's kind of both, which is why we call these "Brookies!" Take these chocolate cookies to your next potluck, get-together, or holiday party, and watch as they gobble 'em all up!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup light margarine
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar

What to Do

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour and baking soda; set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt margarine; remove from heat. Stir in granulated sugar, cocoa powder, and brown sugar. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture just until combined.
  3. Cover and chill dough 1 hour. (Dough will be stiff.)
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  5. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto baking sheets.
  6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges are set. Cool 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

Can you use sour milk in place of buttermilk

Hi there! Yes, sour milk can replace buttermilk in this recipe. You can also use sour cream or yogurt thinned down with milk. :)
