Are Brookies Brownies or Cookies?

Autumn is here which means I will start baking again.  This summer was too busy and just too hot for baking. Birthdays in my family have started up again and this year's request was for a Brookie.  Translation = Brownie and Cookie.  My family is divided on this.  Most love the brownies and love the chocolate chip cookies and want them separate. I'm not sure.  One big question.  What goes in the pan first - the brownie or the cookie dough.  I have made them 3x.  2 successes and 1 epic failure.  My advice - brownie goes 1st in the pan, cookie dough on top.  The brownie cooks more evenly.  Also you must use parchment paper.  Your life will be much easier!  so give these a try and let me know what you think!  This brownie recipe is the best I have ever had.  Make sure you don't overbake.

Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper
Oven at 350 degrees
Melt 4 oz of unsweetened chocolate and 1 stick of unsalted butter together and then cool
1 1/4 c of sugar in a bowl and pour in the chocolate mixture, mix till well blended
Add 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and mix
Add 3 eggs (room temp) one at a time and blend together
Add 3/4 cup of flour and finish blending.  Make sure you mix in any flour at the bottom of the bowl
Spread in the pan

Now Using  your favorite chocolate cookie recipe  - I use Toll House on the back of the package of chips - try and substitute the dark chocolate chips!!! delicious!
 add the cookie dough on top.  Its not easy to spread but this will be fine once in the oven for about 20-25 min.  you need to check.  The cookie party will be lightly browned.
Last step  - Enjoy
Oh and by the time I remembered to take the picture, they were all gone!
