Yes, I’ve joined another on-line cooking club! This one is called Baked Sunday Mornings and we’re baking our way through Baked Explorations: Classic American Desserts Reinvented by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. It’s a marvelous book and this group of bakers is top-notch.
This week’s challenge is for Cowboy Cookies which are soft, chewy oatmeal cookies studded with dark chocolate and pretzel bits.
The recipe also calls for Espresso Powder dissolved in 1/4 cup hot water, but since I’m not a coffee-drinker, I was afraid it would be too strong for me, so I used Kahlua instead.
The one word I have for these cookies is, “Addictive”! I could not stop eating them! I love cookies with a lot of texture and layers of flavor – and these fit the bill! I did have to resist the urge to add nuts to them, but I don’t think they really needed them with the crunchiness of the pretzels.
I love this cookbook & I love this recipe!
