How to make it

  • For the base, combine sugar, flour, cocoa and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add oil, eggs and vanilla, then beat at medium speed for 3 minutes. Pour into greased 9x13 baking pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Cool completely before topping with the cookie dough topping.
  • For cookie dough topping, cream together butter and both sugars.
  • Add half-and-half and vanilla, mixing together well.
  • Beat in the flour.
  • Spread mixture over cooled brownies (this takes time and patience not to tear the brownies as you are spreading the topping over them – I drop by small spoonfuls all over the brownies, and then gently spread it together).
  • Chill until firm, then frost.
  • For frosting, melt milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • You can add the shortening if desired, but I never do.
  • Gently spread the melted chocolate over the cookie dough layer.
  • Chill well to make cutting into squares easier.
  • No need to keep refrigerated once they are chilled and cut, as refrigeration will dry out the brownies. If you are not serving them within a couple days, I would suggest you freeze them.

    Half-and-half is "very light cream usually used in coffee," with a butterfat content of about 12.5%, according to Wikipedia.
    Sorry, the unanswered question was bugging me...
