Cookie + Brownie: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brookie

October is here and that means fall festivals, pumpkin picking, apple cider donuts, cooler temperatures and of course Halloween. There are so many fall treats I enjoy during this time and many of them involve using pumpkin as the featured flavor. Every fall I always make a batch of my mother-in-law’s pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but with Halloween on my mind I decided to make a brookie highlighting her recipe. Recreating the flavors I love and making a brookie was a huge success. I felt a like a mad scientist merging a fudge brownie and pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. The two textures and flavors worked beautifully together.

I have to admit, after seeing a few recipes for a brookie, I was intrigued and wanted to give it a try. The most classic combination is a chocolate chip cookie and fudge brownie. Others I have seen include a fudge brownie with peanut butter, snickerdoodle or sugar cookie. If you can’t get enough of the brookie treat then check out the L.A shop Milk + Brookie that has perfected this dessert.
