Chocolate Chip Brownie Slices

I love doughs that refrigerate/freeze.  They take minutes to make and then you stick them in your fridge and forget about them until you bake them off.  This is exactly the type of cookie I wanted to bake.  The dough was in the fridge in under 5 minutes - leaving me plenty of time to do everything else I needed to do.  Back to the cookies........


........if you don't want to add chocolate chips, use whatever you like in your brownies - nuts, M&M's, coconut, toffee bits, the list is endless.  And these can freeze up to a month, who wouldn't want some chocolatey dough waiting for them in their freezer to be made at any time?!

Chocolate Chip Brownie Slices
makes about 60 cookies

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg
4 oz semisweet chocolate chips melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips - or your favorite type of chip (butterscotch, peanut butter, etc)

  1. In a large bowl beat butter with mixer on medium-high speed until creamy.  Add sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat until combined, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.  Beat in egg, chocolate and vanilla and mix until combined.  With mixer on low, add flour slowly and beat until combined.  Add chocolate chips and stir until incorporated.
  2. Divide dough into equal portions and shape into logs.  Wrap each log tightly in plastic wrap and set in refrigerator to chill 4-24 hours (can leave dough in the freezer, just let thaw in fridge before using). 
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line baking sheets with Silpats or parchment paper.  Cut logs into 3/8" slices and place one inch apart on prepared baking sheets.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are set.  Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
