meet the brookie. Yes - half cookie, half brownie. That might as well be enough to stop you dead in your tracks because who doesn't love a cookie crowned in brownie glory?! 

Recently there's been lots of change. I moved, into a new flat, and jetted off to places in the sun and snow, finally landing back in London town to baking deprivation. I realised I hadn't properly baked in what felt like forever (ok, a couple of weeks), but this was a couple of weeks that could have involved many a pastry-coated dessert or buttery muffin. So when I'd finally settled, I wiped Sainsbury's like a magpie to a glittering watch, clearing the shelves of baking powder and sugar, flour, eggs...

And so, my classic brownie would take a twist too. If Easter didn't bring with it enough chocolate consumption, then this surely would. The crinkly crackly topping, the crisp outer edge and chewy centre. To die for. So if you really want to know the secret to a brookie, check out the recipe below.
