Chocolate brownie cookies

This is a complete winner of a recipe from waitrose. Well I made one change, I did not let the cookies cool then drizzle in chocolate. No no no. I kept the roll of dough in the fridge and cut a few of over a few days. I tucked in to them about 10 minutes after they came out of the oven for complete warm cookie/brownie bliss. I imagine if you left them to completely cool they would lose some of that fudgey goodness. If you are more patient than me and do let them cool, let me know what they are like!

Chocolate brownie cookies

150g dark chocolate
110g butter
100g golden caster sugar
100g light brown sugar
1/2 egg
1/2 tbsp golden syrup
Tsp vanilla extract
150g plain flour
60g cocoa powder
Tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt

Gently melt half the chocolate and set aside to cool a little. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, syrup, vanilla and melted chocolate until combined. Add the remaining ingredients including the remaining chocolate (chopped)' and bear until everything is incorporated. 

Transfer the dough to parchment paper and shape into a rough sausage 20cm long. Wrap in the paper, twisting the ends and chill for at least an hour.

When ready to eat the cookies preheat the oven to 180C/160C FAN and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice cookies off the sausage about 1cm in width. 

Place on the prepared sheet and bake for ten minutes. Remove from the oven and leave on the sheet for ten minutes, they will be very very soft. After 10 minutes remove the cookies from the sheet and either transfer to a wire rack to cool or eat.

A few notes, the slices may not hold together, just squish them back together or place the pieces like a jigsaw on the baking sheet, the pieces will merge during baking. Do not attempt to remove the cookies from the sheet early, they are just too soft. Oh and I implore you to eat them while warm, fudgey and delicious.
