Cookies 'N Creme Brownie Drops
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 1/3 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine at room temperature
1/2 cup vegetable shortening ( like solid crisco)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 of 13 ounce bag white chocolate candy bar nuggets with cookie bits, such as Hershey's cookies 'n creme nuggets,
about 18-20 nuggets, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. In bowl set over pot of hot, not simmering,
water melt chocolate until smooth; set aside. Combine flour, cocoa powder, soda and salt; set aside.

In bowl with mixer at high speed beat brown sugar, butter, shortening and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.

Reduce speed to low; beat in egg,yolk, and vanilla until just combined. Beat in reserved chocolate until smooth. Beat
in reserved flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, until just combined. Stir in candy.

Drop by scant 1/4 cupfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes or until cookies are just set and edges look dry; do not overbake. Cool completely on sheets on rack.

Note: I baked my cookies on a airbake cookie sheet as I didn't have parchment paper on hand. I baked them only 12
minutes. Immediately removed them from cookie sheet to wire rack. They are very yummy. This recipe is a keeper.
