Happy Tuesday, friends! Today I want to share with you a new recipe I recently discovered. It’s from a cookbook my sister gave me years ago, called, Seaboard to Sideboard. The recipe is called Chocadamia Cookies. Come check it out!
A few days ago we were having dinner at a good friend’s house and I offered to bring a dessert. Wanting to try something new, I scoured my cookbooks for something unique. I found this cookie recipe with chocolate chunks and macadamia nuts, hence the name. “Chocadamia Cookies”! Here’s the recipe!
- 1 cup rolled oats (quick oats)
- 1 cup flour, sifted
- ½ cup butter softened
- ½ cup packed light brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extrace
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate chunks
- 1 ¾ cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
- Process the oats in a blender or food processor until finely ground.
- Combine the ground oats, flour, butter, brown sugar, sugar, egg, water, vanilla, baking soda and salt into a large mixing bowl.
- Beat at low speed until mixed, scraping the side of the bowl occasionally.
- Stir in the chocolate chunks and macadamia nuts.
- Chill the dough in the refrigerator for about ½ hour which makes the dough easier to work with.
- Using a tablespoon scoop out some dough and roll it into a ball with your hands and mash it flat.
- Place the cookies 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. (Mine took 10 minutes.)
- Remove from oven and allow to cool on the cookie sheets for 1 minute then remove them to wire racks to cool completely. Yields 2 ½ to 3 dozen. (Mine made 30 cookies.)
TIP: For dessert we put a few scoops of Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice-cream into a bowl and topped it with warm sea salt caramel dessert sauce with a cookie on the side. (I used Mrs. Richardson’s Sea Salt dessert sauce from our local grocery store. It was near the ice cream freezer on an end cap with all of the other ice cream toppings.)
This dessert is great because you can make the cookies ahead of time and it only takes a few minutes to put it all together after dinner. It’s light, and tasty and everyone seemed to enjoy it! A perfect summer time dessert!
Well, I’m impressing myself that I’ve posted twice this week and it’s only Tuesday! LOL. Anyway, I’m trying to get back into my groove here, so tell me, what would you like to see more of?
