Perfect Brownie Cookies

Sooooo...this is why I cannot stay home & watch John Wayne movies all day.  It gives me the munchies like nobody's business.   Chocolate, of course, being my drug of choice.   I signed onto pinterest & plugged in "chocolate" and voila...chocolate brownies appeared!   After taking a quick inventory of my pantry I realized I had all the fixings.    The rest, as they say, is history.   So long diet & helloooooo Mr. Brownie Cookie delight...

Brownie cookies cooling on wire racks.  Yummy!

Below is the recipe in case you find yourself unable to get these off of your mind.   I will say that I added pecans & I would only bake for 8-9 minutes.   They come out with the PERFECT shiny, flaky top.  Enjoy!
