Chocolate Brownie Cookies



  1. In a large bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chopped chocolate with the butter, stirring a few times, until smooth, about 7 minutes.
  2. In another large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar at medium speed for about 5 minutes. Then beat in the vanilla and salt.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the melted chocolate, then fold in the flour and baking powder. Lastly, Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Scrape the batter into a shallow baking dish, cover and freeze until well chilled and firm (for about 1 hour).
  5. Preheat the oven to 350° and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  6. Scoop 2-tablespoon-size mounds of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Use a piece of greased parchment paper to press down on the cookies (this will help with making them thin and crispy).
  7. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the cookies are dry around the edges and cracked on top.
  8. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
