Thick Granola Cookie

In case one recipe wasn’t enough, here’s another granola cookie. The first one was chewy and what I’d call of average thickness, but this one is really thick and puffy. Also, instead of being dense and chewy, the center is crumbly. With less butter and egg, the base is not quite as rich as the […]

Raisin Bran Cookies

Hey, I’ve already accomplished a goal for the New Year!  Hold your applause, but I’ve finally put a dent a big box of Raisin Bran that’s about to go stale. I bought it a few months ago to make that old recipe “Six Weeks Muffins”. Unfortunately, nobody around here thought the muffins were anything special, […]

Milk Bar Cookies

If you’ve followed this blog for a while then you know I’m a big fan of Milk Bar, a bakery in New York famous for cookies, pies and flavored milk. Due to the fact it’s thousands of miles away and I can’t make it there very often, I was happy to hear about this new […]

Life Cereal Cookies

Life Cereal Cookies

If you get to the bottom of a box of Life (or Living Well) cereal and want to use the dregs, this recipe is pretty useful. The cookies were good — not too peanut buttery, but with an interesting texture from the cereal and a good flavor overall. Chilling the dough keeps them from spreading much, so if you chill the dough you might want to press down the mounds of dough a little. Also, the recipe just calls for “butter” and doesn’t call for any salt, so I recommend you use regular butter or use unsalted and add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Granola Chocolate Chip Cookies

I pulled this recipe off Epicurious and decided to see how it stacked up to my old favorite. Overall, the reviews were pretty good and I was excited to try them. In the end, it’s hard to say which I like best. My original recipe (adapted from Cascadian Farms) is a little thicker and heartier, […]

Alabama Cookies

Today’s cookies were inspired by a reader who sent me the recipe a few weeks ago. I happened to be at Disney World and couldn’t run to the kitchen to bake them, but on paper the recipe reminded me of “50 Good Cookies” which also calls for oats, cereal and coconut. But the …

Chocodile Bars

chocodiles

Today’s cookie, another recipe from the old Bake-Off book, was “Chocodile Bars”. It’s a cookie with a firm peanut butter base and a topping made with melted chocolate, peanut butter, and a cereal called Corn Soya which I’d never heard of and had to look up on Mr. Breakfast. It sounds kind of good, but […]
