Fair Time and Brownie Cookies

It is that time of year again, what time you ask…FAIR TIME! You guys I can tell you with all honesty that the fair is nothing I ever thought that I would be look forward to. EVER! I mean hot, crowded, greasy food, crowded, mobile rides (hello safety issues), and did I say crowded.

But I really look forward to it every year. I start thinking about it come summertime. Now to be fair my in-laws have a camper on the fair grounds, like actually inside the fenced area. You see I can avoid the crowds and when the amount of people overwhelms me, I can have normal not greasy food, and I can avoid the crowds (wait did I already say that?).

Beyond that though the reason I really love the fair, the interactions. My husband’s family comes, and we all have a big meal Saturday night for dinner, then another big meal on Sunday at lunch. People come down from Michigan, come in from Pennsylvania, and all around the area. I love the interaction with all of them sitting around the camper. We spend a ton of time with the in-laws, my oldest stays the night Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, lil man isn’t quite ready to stay the night yet. Then the interaction between my boys, his parents, and my parents when they come. Our interactions with the boys. How the boys interact with the animals and displays. It really is a wonderful long weekend. And it is a very long weekend.

Every year I am in charge of bringing brownie cookies, mac and cheese, cheese cubes, guacamole and crockpot liners. So, I am going to share my brownie cookies recipe. Now you can use any brand of brownie mix that you like. We have found a mix that has the chocolate chips already in the batter. This recipe was created before we found this brand so it calls for chocolate chips. If your brownie mix has chocolate chips in it then you don’t need to add the 1/2 cup.

You need 1 box of brownie mix, ¼ Cup vegetable oil, 1 TBSP water, 2 large eggs. You will also for SURE NEED parchment paper. Trust me when I say you NEED this, otherwise they will stick to the pan and you will not get them off in one piece.

Preheat your oven to 325°F. Line your cookie sheets with parchment.

Mix together all ingredients until well blended with no large clumps. I use a cookie scoop, so all of my cookies are the same size. These cookies spread when you put them on the sheet so make sure to leave room.

Then bake 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set. The centers will be soft, do not overbake or they will be very crispy and only good for dunking in coffee, if that, trust me! These cookies are thin, but oh so good. I actually cool my cookies right on the parchment paper that I transfer over from the cookie sheets after a few minutes.

I actually make a double batch because they always go very fast! When you store these use those parchment papers you baked on in between the layers so they cookies don’t stick together in the container. ENJOY!
