TWD - Chockablock Cookies
This week's Tuesday with Dorie is hosted by Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet, who chose Dorie's delicious Chockablock Cookies. They are called "chockablock" because they are full of all sorts of ingredients - chocolate, dried fruit, nuts and coconut. They are also beefed up with oats and molasses (or in my case, golden syrup).
The recipe called for shortening and butter. I don't use shortening usually, so I just used all butter, and it seemed to work fine.
These cookies were fabulous - they require a lot of ingredients, which may make them prohibitive for every day baking, but are worth the effort if you have bits of this and that to use up. I did just that - I used mixed chopped nuts and almonds, cranberries, raisins and dried apricots.
Thanks to our host, Mary, for choosing these - she will have the recipe on her site. To check out what the other TWD bakers thought of these, check out the TWD blogroll.
