I have a cookie emergency! Ok, not really but I have an upcomming event and I really want to take a cookie that I CANNOT find a recipe for. [Swistle note: This = emergency.]
The cookie - A brownie cookie from the bakery of my local supermarket. But not just any brownie cookie - a moist and delicious brownie cookie made with coconut and white chocolate chips that is SOOOO good. I started with the obvious and asked at the bakery for a recipe but it seems they get them shipped in frozen and merely bake them in the store. I tried the store's website (Hy-Vee) and got nowhere so I turned to the internet at large. I found brownie cookie recipes and coconut brownie recipes but nothing in the middle. I'm ready to start experimenting but I don't really know where and this is where you come in.
I know you are a master of the baked goods in general and brownies in particular so I ask you: Have you ever made or eaten such a cookie as I have described? Generally speaking, is a brownie cookie made of different ingredients than a brownie or just baked in a different form? I suspect merely adding coconut and white chocolate chips to a brownie cookie recipe will make it too sweet and possibly too moist to hang together. Thoughts? Helping me with this project will result in a LOT of goodwill coming your way from me and my family . . . plus you will have a DELISH cookie to add to your repertoire that freezes really well and you know what that means - cookies on demand!
It is hard to match a good bakery cookie. Our grocery store bakery makes a caramel coconut chocolate chip one that I have tried IN VAIN to even APPROXIMATE.
I have one recipe for brownie cookies. Betcha we could modify it to include coconut and white chocolate chips (I think my first try would be to add 3/4 cup of each, in place of the chocolate chips), but also betcha it wouldn't much resemble the cookies you have in mind.
Let's spread wide the net! Do any of you have a recipe for chocolate/brownie coconut white-chocolate-chip cookies?
