Blackout Cookies Will Surely Be On Your Best Cookie List

I know that I mainly do restaurant reviews on this blog, but I do love cooking. The other day, I discovered this blackout cookie recipe online that tastes so delicious and is so easy to make that I had to share it with you guys. As this recipe spreads on the internet, I bet that it appears on whatever best cookie ever lists that are out there.

I was at home on the weekend, broke and sickly so I decided to bake to kill time. I really wanted a blackout cake, but between making a cake, filling, frosting and cleaning up afterwards, it was just too much for me to put up with. So I thought to myself, I wonder if there is a blackout cookie recipe out there. Cookies are usually easier and faster to make. At the top of my google search was a recipe by Shana Schuman who won the Chicago Tribune’s Holiday Cookie Contest with it and I knew that I had to try it. The recipe can be found on

After I let them cool off and I was able to takeĀ  bite, what I had was a tasty, chewy brownie batter in cookie form. I’ve never had a cookie like this before. At first I couldn’t tell if I liked it or not. It didn’t really feel like a cookie texture wise, but after eating two more, I decided, that yes, I quite like them. I like them so much that I am munching on one right now as I right this post.

One note, I have no patience. My friends urge me to see a doctor because they think that I have ADD. So when the recipe says that you must refrigerate the cookies for at least 3 hours, I knew that there was no way I could wait that long. I wanted my cookies and I wanted them now. So I popped them into the freezer for about 25 minutes so that they were firm enough for me to form the balls. It was no surprise to me that the cookies came out a lot flatter than they were suppose to be, but they were still wonderful.
