Almond – Chocolate Brownie Cookie

The Holiday season has begun. The neighborhood is decked up with tons and tons of lights. The evenings are bright and colorful. Last weekend we had a small trip to the city of San Antonio, we enjoyed the river walk with a millions of light dazzling high above. Though the trip was a bit hectic, my little one had enough enthusiasm to stay up late till midnight to enjoy this amazing river drive. The city was beautifully ornamented with lots of colorful light, giving happiness to the eyes and heart.

All these celebrations around made me crave for the Christmas special cookies while the other half of me was craving for some brownies. The help came from Gemma Stafford’s youtube channel “Bigger Bolder Baking“, that aided me a lot to bake Brownie cookies. The beauty of this cookie is that with just a few ingredients you get a crunchy outer layer and a soft inner core, which indeed turned out to be a hit with both my boys. And not to mention it was all gone in no time.
