Brownie Tart with Cookie Dough Crust

Best brownie ever.

This tart is super simple to make with very few ingredients. You basically need to open a couple of packets!

The delicious cookie dough crust is the perfect match for the fudgy brownie tart filling. The whipped cream topping adds extra decadence too 🙂 This would be perfect for a dinner party as it is fancy enough to cut into small pieces for an elegant look.

You will need quite a large spring-form pan to get the tart to be the same thickness as mine. I used a 25cm/10 inch pan, but a 23cm/9 inch pan would probably work OK too.

Of course you can use home-made cookie dough rather than store-bought ready-made, but that is entirely up to you.

Ingredients – serves 8-10:

  • 450g/1 lb tube ready-made chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 1 packet brownie mix (I used Betty Crockers 560g/20 oz)
  • 125g/4.5 oz unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup thickened (double/heavy) cream, whipped
  • chocolate shavings, optional, to decorate

Method:

  • Heat your oven to 180C/160C fan forced/350F and spray a 25cm/10 inch spring-form pan with a little cooking spray.
  • Cut the cookie dough into thin slices and then place them over the bottom of the prepared pan to form the tart base. (It doesn’t matter if there are a few small holes between the dough slices as the brownie mix will fill those, but cover the bottom of the pan as much as possible.)
  • Put the brownie mix, melted butter and eggs into a large bowl and beat until smooth.
  • Pour the brownie mix over the cookie dough base and use a spoon to level the surface.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the centre of the tart is just firm when lightly touched.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the pan.
  • Remove from the pan and top the tart with the whipped cream and chocolate shavings, if using.
  • Serve and enjoy!
