TWD: Chockablock Cookies


This week we are baking Chockablock Cookies for the Tuesdays with Dorie group. My first reaction was, "chocka-WHAT?" I was completely clueless what to expect as I was opening the cookbook to find the recipe.

And after I read the recipe... I was still completely clueless what to expect. Molasses? Coconut? Oatmeal? Raisins? Chocolate Chips? NUTS?!?! What is this world coming to?

So I only made a half batch. And the smell of the molasses kind of turned my stomach as I poured it in. Boy, I hope these are good.

I didn't end up having quite enough oatmeal left, and I omitted the nuts because all I had were walnuts which I don't really like (explains why they've been sitting in my house for so long).

They were super quick to make. I took them out of the oven and thought... hhhmmm... well they're not pretty! But they're actually quite good. I'm really wishing I'd had some nuts on hand because I think the only thing they're missing is a little crunch. I may have to try them again after a trip to the grocery store.

Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet is our host for today. You can head over to her site to find the recipe! Thanks Mary!

I was afraid of the molasses too, so I used brown sugar instead.

Nuts are good! This was a fun cookie to make, so many flavors and textures. It was a winner at my house.

I only made half a batch as well, as although my teen boys will down most any cookie, this one seemed full of stuff that might put the brakes on...boy was I wrong...they inhaled these and wanted more...what was I thinking???? Yours look wonderful, ugly or not, there is beauty in them!

Agreed, I was total skeptical and totally won over. The nuts were key, though. Yours look fab!

They look great! I didn't use molasses, but I wonder if I should have used it.

I reduced the molasses to 1TB and cranked up the sugar. I used peanuts too! Much prettier and just as tasty!
