Pastry Profiles: The Brookie, BAKED, Brooklyn, NY

So, a cookie walks into a bar...

….that cookie, of course, being a chocolate chip cookie, the bar being a bar cookie (a brownie, actually), and you can find out the rest of the story when you taste the wonder that is the Brookie from BAKED in Brooklyn.

If you've ever wondered what happens when a cookie makes sweet love to a brownie, well, this baby will answer that question in the most delicious way possible.

 The perfect intersection of buttery, brown sugary, chocolate chip-studded cookie, with a crunchy crust, paired with a deep, dark, chocolatey, fudgy brownie, this is the type of baked good that will make you have to sit down if you are standing up, and will make you want to lie down afterward, in a sort of sugar and butter and chocololate-induced coma. That's a euphoric coma, though.

...if you're not in Brooklyn, however, there is good news: there is a recipe in their great book, and I hear a rumor that their brownie mixes at Williams-Sonoma are doing so well that they're coming out with a mix for these soon, too (under the name "Brookster" I believe).

Now that's pretty sweet.

Also a good idea: buy their most excellent books : Baked: New Frontiers in Bakingand Baked Explorations: Classic American Desserts Reinvented.
