Posted on Leave a comment

If you follow along with the “Hannah Swenson Mystery” series on Hallmark Mysteries, then you have to be familiar with Hannah’s famous chocolate chip crunch cookie! I made this cookie extra rich with browned butter, huge chocolate chunks and a sweet mystery inside!


-2 1/4 cup flour

-1 teaspoon baking soda

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-2 sticks unsalted butter

-2 1/2 teaspoons plain Greek yogurt

-2 eggs

-1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

-1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract

-2 semi-sweet chocolate baking bars

-Small can cherry pie filling


First melt your butter in a skillet, stirring continuously until melted and starting to become golden in color. In order for it not to burn, pour it into a heat safe bowl and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, combine melted butter and brown sugar. Slowly mix in eggs, vanilla and yogurt.

Chop up chocolate bar into chunks and add into the dough mixture, leaving some behind to place on top of each cookie.

Chill dough for 30 minutes and preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Scoop chilled dough into your hand and flatten a bit to make a well in the center. Place a small dollop of cherry pie filling in the center and cover top with more cookie dough. Place on cookie sheet and add more chocolate chunks to the top. Bake for 20 minutes.
