Sorry it’s been a few days folks, I now have the use of a point-and-shoot Nikon, but no cord! So I have pictures from some stuff I’ve been making, but no way of putting them on my computer! I’ve been really wanting to upgrade the level of my photos… but without any fancy camera we’ll see when that happens… For now I’ve got some Iphone photos to share of a surprising recipe from last night.
If you recall, I have a bunch of cinnamon chips in my pantry. Well, last night I got a hankering for something sweet, so I decided to make use of them. I didn’t want to make blondies again, but also wanted an easy recipe. I decided to go into the cookie realm. For whatever reason, I decided to just look for a basic cookie recipe and then add my cinnamon chips and maybe some other flavors. So through a google search I found a “Basic Cookie Dough” recipe on Delish.com.
Well, I think I should have gone the foodblog/Foodgawker route because my “cookies” ended up being really crumbly and more bread-ish than cookie-ish. Definitely weird!
I’ve grown really fond of them, though, so I decided to share the recipe with you. I don’t really know what to call them… crumble cookies? Bread-ish cookies? Wannabe cookies?
Adapted from Delish.com
-1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
-3/4 cup sugar
-1 tsp vanilla
-1 tbsp honey
-2 3/4 cup flour
-1/4 tsp baking soda
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4-1/2 cup cinnamon chips
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 cup walnuts
Make it Happen:
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. With a mixer, cream softened butter and sugar.
3. Mix in egg, followed by vanilla and honey.
4. Then, slowly mix in flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
5. Mix in cinnamon chips and walnuts.
6. Either use hands and spoons to make small rounds and drop on cookie sheet, or spread the dough in a pan to cook as a sheet cookie (I suggest the pan because they don’t spread out much as cookies)
So although this was an accidental recipe that turned out differently than I expected, I wouldn’t share it with you unless I thought that it tasted good. And these cookies definitely taste good! These cookie bars are not cloyingly sweet, so if you’re the kind of person that wants a little sugar fix, but doesn’t want to feel the cavities forming as you eat a cookie, these would be just up your alley. They’re perfect as a breakfast out-the-door snack. And who doesn’t love an excuse to eat cookies for breakfast?
