Chewy Brownie Cookies

Chewy Brownie Cookies

2/3 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 tbsp water
3 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp soda
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet
chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecan, optional

In a large bowl, cream the shortening, sugar, water, and the vanilla until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs. Combine the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add to the creamed mixture. Beat just until blended. Stir in the chocolate and the nuts if desired. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 F for 7-9 minutes. Do Not Overbake. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool. Makes 3 dozen

These are SUPPOSE to have chocolate chips in them..HOWEVER..I went to get my chocolate chips out of the freezer..and my lovely husband had a snack attack and there were NONE in the freezer so I had to substitute with the m&m's...otherwise I'm sure they would look alot better..
They are good and chewy tho!!!
Give em a try!
