Saturday, May 29, 2010 Kooky Cookie Creations!
Tomorrow I once again find myself in the role of guest.
So what do I do? I make two kinds of cookies. That’s what I do.
The first is my own creation - S’mores Cookies.
I adapted my “Fairfield County Famous” oatmeal cookie recipe to accommodate some chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs and, of course, marshmallows.
The resulting cookies, while tasty, seem to lack any recognizable bits of marshmallow. They seem to have melted away!
But WHO CARES?
This is a holiday weekend! By the time folks get to dessert they’ll be sloshed!
The Potato Stick Cookies I adapted from a potato chip cookie recipe. They’re super sweet, nice and crunchy.
While I made the potato sticks myself I bet these would be better with store bought sticks. Mine seem to have melted away! Much like the marshmallows…
So, here they are…the recipes. Play around with them if you want. Let me know how they turn out!!!!
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup butter
1 cup apple sauce
1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour
1 cup regular oats
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup mini-marshmallows
¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix together sugar, butter, eggs and apple sauce. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients (minus chips and marshmallows) and then add to wet ingredients. Fold in chips and marshmallows. Spoon onto greased cookie sheets (or use an ice cream scoop like me) and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
