Frosted Brownie Cookies

I love brownies. I also have a hard time, for some reason, getting them to turn out perfectly when baked in a pan. They are either too gooey and fall apart or too hard and barely come out of the pan.

These brownie cookies are the perfect texture (a bit crunchy on the outside and chewy inside). My kiddos love to help decorate them. I found them on the back of a Pillsbury box a couple years ago and we have been in love with them since.

1 pkg. Pillsbury Double Chocolate brownie mix

1/3 c. Crisco Butter Flavor Shortening, melted

1 egg

1 can frosting


Heat oven to 350 degrees, grease cookie sheets.

Stir brownie mix, chocolate syrup packet, melted shortening and egg. Scoop into 1 1/2-inch balls and place on cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes. When cool, frost and decorate.


  1. I will have to try your cookies. They look good. I have to say though, if you like just a plain brownie, bake them in a cupcake paper cup. My mom told me to try this years ago when I was trying to come up with ideas for lunch boxes. Just mix your brownies like you normally wood. Instead of putting in a pan, put in cupcake liners. Bake at the same temp as you would for the pan. I can't remember the exact time, so I would check after 12 minutes. I am thinking 15 min. You will be able to tell they are done when you touch the top of them and they are cracked a little. These are perfect everytime. I think that the paper cups help.


  2. These look so yummy! :) Planning to make them this week.
