TWD: Chockablock Cookies
Molasses, Oats, Cherries, Chocolate, Pecans, Coconut...Oh My!
Yes, folks, that is a lot of ingredients to pack into one little cookie. But let me tell you they are delicious.
Dorie's recipe uses a combination of both butter and shortening, I decided to take the lazy way out and just used all butter. She also gives a lot of room for creativity in this recipe. You can use any combination of nuts and dried fruit you would like. I opted for using dried cherries and pecans in additional to the oats, coconut and chocolate chips that were already part of the recipe. I loved the flavors together. They all complimented each other really well. The cookies were sticky in texture from the molasses and the the dough had a strong molasses flavor but in the end I didn't really notice a molasses flavor at all.
Thank you to Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet. You can find the recipe on her blog.
