Brownies and Cream Sandwich Cookies

So I haven't posted a sweet recipe for a few weeks and thought I'd better. I liked this recipe because it didn't make a ton of cookies, thus less for me to be tempted to eat. Matter-of-fact I only ending up eating ONE!! I can't beleive it myself!:) I did try to get rid of them as quickly as possible though so I wouldn't find myself gorging (it's that time of year again...dieting!:() So I sent half a dozen with Tony to school and fed one to all my piano students that day!:) So if that doesn't tell you how good they were...that I had to get them out of the house as fast as possible so I wouldn't eat them all...I don't know what will!:)

Brownies and Cream Sandwich Cookies
Recipe from Duncan Hines

1 box Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
Vanilla frosting (use the pre-made stuff or your favorite recipe)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray your cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix, oil, and eggs until just blended and all the dry ingredients are moistened. Then stir in the chocolate chips.

Place on cookie sheet in heaping tablespoons (I used my medium cookie scoop and it worked wonderfully!).
Bake for 11-14 minutes until cracked in appearance and just barely set in the center when touched. I baked the first batch for about 13 minutes and they ended up being too cooked, so I did the rest for 11 minutes and that was MUCH better so just make sure not to overcook them.
Cool for 1 minutes on the cookie sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

When cooled, spread frosting on half of the cookies and then top with another cookie, and gently press together.

Enjoy this one...I absolutely LOVED the chocolate chips in this just took the chocolatiness (I know that's not a word!) to a whole new level!:)
