The Chewy Brownie Cookie

What an evening!! I have finally got the kids in bed after back to school night and catching and releasing the bird that flew in through an open window while we were at parent teacher conference. My husband caught the bird in the kids butterfly net. The kids thought it was great! I couldn't wait to just get it out. I wanted to get a picture, but missed the chance. Once the kids heard us talking about it, there was no holding still....for the kids or the bird.

These cookies are great! As I was eating the first one, I thought these would be GREAT with chopped up Andes mints instead of the chocolate chips or even better....some mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwiched between two cookies. Unfortunately the cookies didn't last long enough to get to the store for the ice cream...maybe next time:)
