Chocolate Brownie Cookies

My youngest daughter is normally pretty good at being on time. She is ready with time to spare. With my son, I don't know what he does with time. It doesn't matter if he is up early or late. He will still be late. Well, my daughter's last soccer game was moved up a day due to conflicting schedules. This would normally not be a problem except we were suppose to bring a snack to the last game. Since I worked that day, I really needed something quick. While the cookies were baking, my daughter realized that we would be a little late to the game. She was a little upset about it until my youngest son looked at her and announced, "Welcome to my life!" My husband and I just started laughing which made my daughter feel better. I did tell my son the difference was that he did it to himself. My husband and oldest daughter agreed.
In the end, my daughter was rewarded when her friends on her soccer team really liked her dessert. One friend told her that these cookies taste just like brownies and were great. I did hide a few for my grateful husband. If you like brownies from a box, you will love these cookies. If you don't have a lot of time but need a dessert for last minute, you will love these cookies. Oh, how I love brownies anyways but now in a cookie form just make them wonderful! I was in such a hurry that I forgot to add 1 Tbsp of water in the recipe but I was lucky and they still came out great. Welcome to my life!

One year ago..................I made Mummy Cake Pops
Even if I'm late, I have great hair!
Did you already know...
-According to the Palmer Hotel, they were the first to create the brownie.
-In 1893, the chefs at the hotel created the dessert at the request of the owner Bertha Palmer.
-Mrs. Palmer asked for a dessert that would not be as messy as a cake that would fit inside a box lunch for the Women's Pavilion at the the World’s Columbian Exposition.
