I got an amazing deal on Duncan Hines Brownie mixes a couple of weeks back and this recipe was on the back of one of the boxes. I also just headed over to the Duncan Hines website and found a bunch of other really yummy looking recipes. These reminded me of whoopie pies and I knew I had to give them a try.
These cookies were really easy to make and were super yummy too. Just a couple notes about the recipe…
1. It says to grease the cookie sheet.
My cookies looked like this when I greased the cookie sheet. They were also pretty crisp on the edges and hard to get off the pan.
This is how they looked when I did NOT grease the pan. I liked these much better.
2. The recipe said to make the cookies with heaping tablespoons of dough. Unless you want massive cookies, this is not a good plan. I used a teaspoon and only put about 1/2 of a teaspoon of batter for each cookie. Remember, for every sandwich cookie you eat, you are really going to be eating 2 cookies.
Anyway, here’s the recipe:
- 1 large egg
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 can Duncan Hines® Creamy Home-Style Classic Vanilla Frosting
- Preheat oven to 375 ºF. Grease cookie sheet.
- Combine brownie mix, egg, water and oil in large bowl. Stir until well blended and soft dough forms. Drop by level measuring tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 375 ºF. for 7 to 8 minutes or until cookies are set in center. Do not over bake. Cool for 1 minute before removing to cooling rack. Cool completely before assembling.
- Spread frosting on half the cookies. Top each frosted cookie with another cookie. Gently press together.
