Crownie: Cookie-Brownie

Crownie (n.) crown-e A decadent treat that blends the best of a cookie and a brownie in one muffin tin. The home-baked flavors of the cookie bottom when paired with the light and rich chocolate brownie topping makes this crownie amazing!

These were a team effort…especially since we had just finished hiking all 16.2 miles within two days. Lee was the man for stirring, while Chelsea and Becca assembled the crownies.

As you can see, first you mix up your cookie dough and fill each hole of the 12 muffin tin halfway up.

Then you cover the cookie dough with the brownie dough.

  1. You did it! I was seriously contemplating something similar this weekend to combine brownie and cookie dough – so glad to know this idea works. I ended up doing brownie-swirled chocolate chip cookies (will post them later this week). They’re definitely two desserts that go great together!
