    In a bowl mix the cold butter and sugar for    
   about 1 minute on lowest speed. Add the  
   egg and vanilla and continue to beat
   until combined.

    Mix together the dry ingredients and add
    them to the butter and sugar mixture.
   You should have a very stiff, lightly 
   sticky dough. 

   If needed, add another tablespoon of flour.  
   Add the chocolate chips and mix until 
   combined. (at this point I chilled the 
   dough for about an hour)
   It makes it easier for the next step.

Place dough in a 4oz ice cream scoop, create with your fingers a large hole in the middle. 
Cut the brownies into small pieces, and place them inside the ice cream scoop. 

Now cover the brownies with more dough.
Place on a prepared baking sheet.
Place the cookies in the refrigerator for 5 minutes to chill the dough again. This will help prevent the cookies from spreading. 

Bake for 10-12  minutes or until the outsides are lightly browned.

Makes 2 dozen large cookies.
