Chewy Brownie Cookies

AKA Cow Pies

2/3 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 T. water
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
1/3 c. cocoa
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
1 1/2 c. flour
2 c. chocolate chips (We added peanut butter chips)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat shortening, brown sugar, water, and vanilla until well blended. Add eggs, beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Gradually add to sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 7-9 minutes or until cookies are set. Cookies will appear soft and moist. Do not over bake. Cool 2 minutes. Place cookies on cooling rack. Cool completely.

I really like these cookies. I haven't had them before. I was just a little dissapointed at how flat they were. So instead of chewy brownie cookies, I've decided to call them cow pie cookies.
