This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet. She chose Dorie’s Chockablock Cookies which are located on page 86 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. I guess you could consider this cookie a throw all cookie…as in you throw a bunch of random yummy stuff in the batter (dried fruit, coconut, oats, chocolate, nuts, etc.) and bake it up 🙂
I have to hurry up and write this entry because I need to leave for work in 30 minutes. I baked up these little monsters in the oven this afternoon, and the last batch just made its way out of the oven. For the filling I ended up using golden raisins, coconut, oats, chocolate chips, and hazelnuts.
They were sitting in my freezer and I needed to use them.
Before baking, the molasses flavor was very prominent in the batter, but after they came out of them oven I couldn’t even taste the molasses. All I could taste was the wonderful combination of hazelnuts and chocolate. These giant cookies reminded me of a high ended oatmeal raisin cookie with the added yumminess of hazelnuts and chocolate. I am sure Mike will grab one of these off the counter when he gets home and not even realize that they have coconut in them 🙂
Thank you for picking these this week Mary. They were quick and easy to make and they were yummy 🙂
