It is so fun how food become so creative these days – the names of the food itself, the way how people combine two recipes together to create a new one… or how people mix and match ingredients from various recipes that they come out with one more amazing recipe.

Sorry, I was craving brownies for more than a week, but I don’t know why I couldn’t make one. Maybe I want something else – not the plain, classic one. A new one. Create my own? Not yet.

I think everyone wants to create theirs. I also want to create one, but baking is a kind of science that you need to get the right formula if you don’t want to end up crying. Well, for some, they really take the risk, but I don’t think I will be able to create one recipe that I could really say it originates from me. Maybe… one day! We don’t know.

thenotsocreativecook_Brookies3Hmm… let me take back myself from the wonderland and accept the fact that what I can do for the meantime is combine two of my favorites – brownies and cookies. I’ve been seeing Brookies for as long as I can remember and I really wanted to try making some. When I baked Lily’s cookies, I did not use all the cookie batter and experimented on Brookies. I used the last brownie recipe I have which is a cake-like brownies. Since it’s a cake-like brownies, the cookie batter was heavier than the brownie batter that it did not ‘float’. I was expecting a cookie over the brownie cups, but I got a cookie ‘ball’ inside the brownie cups. I was just going to cry, but when I took a bite – wow, my two loves in one. It’s like the brownie married the cookie and they got a child named Brookie. 😀


I am thinking of making another batch of Brookies using different recipes to find out what went wrong with mine. I’d say that I’ll keep on trying until I found one that’s appealing to my eyes.

I hope you like this batch of Brookies. How about you? Have you tried making one? I want to know about the recipe you followed. 🙂

  1. They look delicious – though I am a bit over the hybrid baking madness this is one I would not mind trying! Thanks for linking with #CookBlogShare

  2. Brookies, the name is so adorable and I am loving the idea of putting brownies and cookies together! Yours look great, I would not bother too much if you ended up with a cookie ‘ball’ rather than a layer on top as long as they taste good :).

    1. I really love brownies and cookies – what more if they are put together? 😀 Thanks a lot for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely week. 🙂 xx

    1. Hi, Helen. Sorry I forgot to put the badge, I will add it to the three posts once I get my hands on the computer as I don’t know why it didn’t work using my phone. 😦

      Thanks so much, Helen. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. xx

  3. I find baking to be much more of a challenge for me. It’s so much easier to change a recipe for something you are cooking, but baking is more of an exact science. I’d much rather make a soup or salad or pretty much anything besides bake…unless we’re talking bar cookies…those I like to make. 🙂

    1. I agree. I don’t always follow the recipe when it comes to cooking. 😀 Baking really helps me learn how to be patient and follow instructions, hehe. Thanks a lot for hosting #FoodieFriDIY and thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend. xx

    1. That’s what I like about this version of mine, Liz – you don’t know that something inside is waiting. 😀 Thanks a lot for stopping by. xx
