Chockablock Cookies TWD

I’ll be honest with you, I wasn’t feeling this recipe. I was pretty sure that I wasn’t going to make it because I thought I wouldn’t like the cookies. The main reason is the nut/dried fruit combo, neither of these ingredients are high up on my to-eat list. However, I was making dinner for S. tonight and he likes nuts and trail mix, so I thought I would whip up a half-batch up for him. Once again, I shouldn’t have doubted Dorie.

My take on these was to use maple syrup instead of molasses. I am trying really hard not to run out for one off ingredients, instead using substitutions. For the add-ins I used chopped peanuts, dried cranberries and butterscotch chips. I was really pleased with the results. Thanks to Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet for choosing this week’s recipe. And thanks Dorie for once again, providing us with baking awesomeness. If you don’t have Baking: From My Home to Yours you should go get it!

  1. I think I’ll try these with maple syrup next time. Your cookies look great and using butterscotch chips was an inspired choice.

  2. Thansk so much for baking along with me. I like your butterscotch chip idea… I will have to try that next time!

  3. I’m so jealous that you and several other people thought of adding the butterscotch chips. Sounds great! I’m sure it was tasty, too. Nice job.

  4. Not so much a favorite at our house. Maybe if I would have used maple syrup…
