Chocolate Chip Cookies for Grown-ups is what Milk Street calls these toasted rye flour chocolate chip cookies. I was a little skeptical at first, but tried them anyway.
Toasted Rye Flour
Along with the rye, the cookies have a full tablespoon of molasses. I’ve made cookies with rye flour, cookies with molasses and cookies with toasted all-purpose flour, but this was the first recipe I’d ever tried with toasted rye flour and molasses. As a bonus, the rye toasting in the oven made the whole house smell good — almost like popcorn.
Chocolate Chip Cookies for Grown-ups Batter
Here are a few pictures from the process. As mentioned, I was a little worried at first that the cookies might taste a little too grown-up.
And after my first bite I did find that the flavor was a little strong, but all the flavors mellowed out a bit towards the end and I really started appreciating the interestingness of the cookies. My family, especially my daughter, did too.
My friend Debbie already posted her take on the recipe, so you can grab it from her. Better yet, get it free off Milk Street and then subscribe.
Entertaining recipe review. Wish I had time to make them.
Heh, thanks! It’s good to be back in the kitchen baking. I’m working on a write-up about Paris, but it’s taking me a while.
LOL, loved your write-up on this! Hope they’re delicious on day 2!
