Brownies with choc chip cooking topping!

This is really awesome! Adapted from a Dorie Greenspan recipe.


Chipster Topped Brownies

Ingredients
For the brownie layer:
*6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
*3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
* I used 9 oz bittersweet Ghirardelli
2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into chunks
1 2/3 cups sugar
4 large eggs
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (I left out the walnuts)

For the cookie layer:
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup (packed) light brown sugar
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
*6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into chips, or 1 cup store-bought chocolate chips
Used Ghirardelli bittersweet choc chips
Getting ready:
Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-x-13-inch
baking pan, line it with wax or parchment paper and butter the paper. Put the pan on a
baking sheet.
*Use a metal pan, not pyrex - people who used pyrex had trouble baking the brownies
through.

To make the brownie batter:
Put both chocolates and the butter in a microsafe bowl and heat it until just
melted,shiny and smooth stirring occasionally. If the mixture gets too hot, the butter
will separate from the chocolates.

Working with a stand mixer, preferably fitted with a paddle attachment, or with a hand
mixer in a large bowl, beat the sugar and eggs on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes,
until pale, thick and creamy. Beat in the salt and vanilla extract. Reduce the speed to
low and mix in the melted chocolate and butter, mixing only until incorporated. Scrape
down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, then, still on low speed, add the
flour, mixing only until it disappears into the batter. Using the spatula, fold in the
walnuts, and scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Set aside.

Do the above step first before making the cookie dough. That gives the brownies time to
set up a little and it's easier to spread on the cookie dough.

To make the cookie dough:
Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Working with a stand mixer in the cleaned bowl or with the hand mixer in another large
bowl, beat the butter and both sugars together on medium-high speed until smooth and
creamy, about 3 minutes. One at a time, add the egg and the yolk, beating for 1 minute
after each addition. Beat in the vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry
ingredients, mixing only until they disappear into the dough. Still on low, mix in the
chopped chocolate. Drop the cookie dough by spoonfuls over the brownie batter an, using a
spatula and a light touch, spread it evenly over the batter.

Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until the cookie top is deep golden brown and firm and a
thin knife inserted into the brownie layer comes out with only faint streaks of moist
chocolate. Transfer the pan to a rack and cool to room temperature.

When the brownies are completely cool, carefully run a knife between the sides of the pan
and the brownies, then invert them onto another rack, remove the paper and turn right
side up onto a cutting board. Cut into bars about 2 inches by 1 inch. (You can cut larger
bars if youÂ’re serving to cookie lovers with Texas-size appetites.)

Enjoy!

That's what the youth pastor's wife made for his birthday a couple months ago, tho hers came from a box (luckily for them, because it got over looked in everything else that was going on, so it came together quickly). I saw something recently, may have been in a King Arthur Flour e-mail, make the cookie dough, press it in to the bottom of a 9x13 pan, put it in the oven while you mix up a cake, pour that over the cookie base and bake until done. Gotta spare cake mix @ Church in the stuff that was dropped off for thanksgiving baskets, so I'm gonna add that to my list tomorrow possibly.
