Pillow Cookies

The Starving Chef
While you can make your own cookie dough and brownies from scratch, I've actually found that store bought cookie dough and boxed brownie mix work just as well, if not better, to guarantee a soft and chewy cookie!
Prep Time 1 hr
Cook Time 10 mins
Cooling Time 1 hr
Total Time 2 hrs 10 mins
Course Cookies
Cuisine Cookies
Servings 3 dozen


  • 4 packages packages (24 count) store bought chocolate chip cookie dough (96 individual pieces)
  • 1 box box fudge brownie mix + required ingredients according to instructions on box


  • Prepare and bake the brownie batter according to the instructions for a 9x13 on the box. Let cool completely. Cut into 48 one inch by one inch squares (6 cuts lengthwise, 8 cuts across).
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Keep cookie dough chilled when not in use. Open one package at a time to keep the dough easy to work with. Gently flatten two pieces of dough. Press the brownie flat between your palms and shape into a circle so that it will fit in the center of a flattened piece of dough. Place the second piece of dough on top, pinch the edges together and roll into a ball. Repeat with the remaining brownie pieces and cookie dough.
  • Arrange the cookies about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet (about 6 per standard size baking sheet). Use the bottom of a glass to flatten the dough balls slightly, then bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are cooked though and have browned on top. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Eat them warm with a glass of milk and enjoy!
