Happy Martin Luther King Day! I hope everyone has taken some time to think about him. Fuzz and I have, and we’ve had some interesting discussions as well. We even thought about making a dinner in his honor, but can’t agree on what. So for now, here’s a cookie baked in his honor.
This recipe was created by Nicole at Baking Bites. Normally, I wait a while before trying cookies that others just wrote about, but this is one of those cases where I saw the recipe and couldn’t wait. What Nicole did, which I thought was very creative, was take a batch of pre-baked streusel, break it up, and mix it in with oatmeal cookie dough. At first she wasn’t sure if adding baked streusel into oatmeal cookie dough would have any real impact on the taste and texture, but it did. The cookies are excellent.
