Brownie: The Fudgy Baked Confectionery!
The brownies acquire their origin from the United States and Canada at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. These brownies are usually topped with whipped cream, sprinkled with sugar and nuts, cream, oats, and cheese. Many a time, chocolate chips and jam are used as well. These are often consumed with a hot cup of tea or coffee and can be served with ice-creams, which are usually served in Northern America’s coffeehouses. Brownies are made of a combination of all-purpose flour, sugar, and oils.
Cookies: The Chewy Biscuits
The cookies possess their origin from the United States, which commonly has a vast variety known as date squares, bars, sandwich biscuits, custard creams, bourbons, and whatnot. These cookies are baked to perfection in an oven with various spices or ingredients, including sugars, chocolates, butter, dried fruits, and, most importantly, all-purpose flour.
Brownie + Cookie = Brookie!
Brookies are created with the chocolate chip dough of cookies and fudgy, rich brownie batter with the marbled layers of the chocolate chip dough. The cookie is first made by beating together the soft butter, brown sugar or white sugar, vanilla extracts, and eggs until this mixture turns light and creamy. Then in a bowl, flour, salt, baking soda, butter is added and whisked until a perfect dough is made. Chocolate chips are further added. This dough is then spread on the bottom of the baking dish.
Then, for the brownie preparation, sugar is taken with some melted butter, eggs, and extracts of vanilla are added in the bowl with some cocoa powder and then combined well. The flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa mix are all stirred well. After this, the batter of the brownie is poured over the cookie batter, which was first prepared. This whole mix is then baked for 20-25 minutes until the centre gets a fluffy texture which can be checked by inserting a toothpick.
