Chocolate and oatmeal - hmmm, not natural bedfellows, but they tasted good together in this week's Tuesday with Dorie pick, Chocolate Oatmeal Drops, chosen by Caroline and Claire of Bake With Us.
Chocolate Oatmeal Drops are, as Dorie herself states, more brownie-like than cookie-like, as they are quite dense, fudgy and chewy. Their dark brown colour and deep chocolate flavour come from the combination of cocoa and melted chocolate, and the oats add texture.
These cookies were good - perhaps not what I would naturally gravitate to, but enjoyable all the same.
This recipe makes a lot of cookies - Dorie says 50, but I got 41. Even though I managed to "lose" a few on the way to work (ahem), they lasted most of the day by force of numbers.
To get the recipe, visit Caroline and Claire (on Tuesday their time), or buy the book, Baking From My Home to Yours. And to see what the other TWD members thought of these cookies, visit the TWD blogroll.
