TWD: Chockablock Cookies
When I saw the name of this week’s Tuesdays With Dorie recipe, Chockablock Cookies, I immediately assumed they were a chocolate-based cookie packed with goodies. They aren’t so much a chocolate-based cookie but an anything or everything you want cookie, as the recipe gives a loose guideline of the fruits and nuts to use - plus chocolate, oats, and coconut. Honestly, I think the best part about these cookies will be seeing what kind of variations the fabulously talented bakers of Tuesdays With Dorie came up with. Not to say they aren’t good cookies, at least the few bites I’ve had (I didn’t make them until last night due to the backlog of treats. Not procrastination). Plus some dough, it was really good cookie dough. My mix consisted of chopped up dark chocolate, dried cherries, and walnuts. I skipped the coconut since Josh doesn’t like it. The recipe calls for molasses, but I used Lyle’s Golden Syrup for the liquid gooey binder instead. I like molasses, but I also like to entertain myself by trying out new ingredients – very exciting, I know.
Josh brought a stash of cookies to work with him today and reported that they rated a 7.5 for Deliciousness. I gave them 2.5 for Effort, for an EDR of 3. Many thanks to Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet for a fun selection. You can find the recipe here on Mary’s site and click here to see more cookies.
