Chockablock Cookies....TWD


This week in Tuesdays with Dorie, we baked Chockablock Cookies, a cookie with everything in it, it seems. This was chosen by -Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet . The recipe can be found at Mary's or on page 86 in Dorie's Baking - My Home to Yours.

I did a little switching up by subtracting the amount of nuts, and staying with just ground pecans that I had hanging around. I also added another egg to make them more chewy, along with under baking them a little. Then in place of molasses, I sub in corn syrup.

So when it came down to it my additives were....coconut, pecans. white chocolate chips, dried cranberries. I know.....I could have added more, but I wanted to keep it simple. The kids don't like alot of stuff in their cookies. I would rate this a more adult healthy cookie!

We give this 4 glasses of milk,

for utter goodness!

Your cookies look beautiful. The extra egg and fewer mix-ins gives them a puffier structure that looks very tasty.

What great additions! I've got several bags of white choco chips to use.... paired with cranberries sounds wonderful. They look fantastic, love the lighter, puffier look to them - so glad you enjoyed them! They were a favorite of mine too!
