Somebody Pinch Me!

I either must be dreaming or I have gone to heaven.  Three words for why I am feeling this way: Brownie Pillow Cookies.

When I saw this recipe on Bakerella.com I instantly had to make them!  I mean really, what could be better than chocolate chip cookies with a brownie center?  I already had a box of brownie mix handy and all the ingredients to make the cookies, so with much anticipation I set out to make these tempting confections.

First you make the brownies (from a box worked great), then you make the cookie dough but must let it sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour.  Then you measure out 1/2 cup of dough for each cookie.  Yes, that is what I said, 1/2 cup for EACH cookie!  After creating an indentation in each mound of dough, place a 1" square of brownie into the hole and cover it completely with the dough.  Complete instructions and recipe here.

Let me just say that I am still in a sugar coma after consuming ONE of these.  It was amazing, but I don't think consuming more than one is possible.  My shallow breathing and glazed over look indicated that I had had my fill.

That dark chewy center is a brownie!  And not just any brownie, a Ghirardelli chocolate chip brownie.  Because, you know, you can never have too many chocolate chips!

As a survivor of eating one of these monstrosities, my advice for when doing so is to go slow; have a tall glass of ice cold milk within reach; and remember to breathe.

Oh, and a dainty cocktail napkin ain't going to cut it for a job this big ... go for the Brawny man-strength paper towels, folks!

Oh. My.

I think I can smell these through the screen.
