Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet decided on Chockablock Cookies for TWD this week. Why “chockablock?” Because they are loaded with good stuff– dark chocolate, dried fruit (I used cherries) and nuts (cashews here). Oops, I almost forgot to mention the oats, coconut and molasses. Don’t worry, the molasses doesn’t make then seem like spice cookies…it gives them a lovely chew and a brown sugary sweetness.
Usually extra cookie dough winds up in my deep-freeze, and is pulled out when I have nothing else prepped for dessert. But not this time…these guys were gone in a blink. Yeah, they are that good.
Ooh, I love the photo of the cookie! It captured the texture and color so well! Makes me want to just pick it up and take a huge bite! I didn’t have cashews in my pantry, but I can imagine the rich nuttiness that it’ll add. Great job!
Steph, you’ve convinced me yet again- now I’ve gotta try these cookies! When I first saw them in Dorie’s book, I thought they might have TOO much going on, but if they’ve received your seal of approval, I know they’ve gotta be good. Yours certainly look delicious (then again, so does everything you make!)
Hope all is well… I’ve actually been meaning to get in touch with you because I have a question about this month’s CSB recipe (I know I can’t put it here because the recipe has to say hush hush), so be expecting an email from me soon!
Have a great start to your week! Look forward to hearing from you.
I’m not a huge cookie fan so I purposely included mix-ins I didn’t like so I wouldn’t mindlessly eat these. Now that I see how many raves they’re getting, I know I’ll have to make them again so I can try them. Yours look fabulous!
