I was watching Trisha Yearwood's cooking show the other day when she made these Brownie Batter Cookies. They sounded so good that I waisted no time and headed straight to the kitchen to whip up a batch. They're crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside - just perfect when you need a chocolate fix. Thanks Trisha!
