My husband has been wanting, what he calls "Brown Cow Cookies" for quite awhile. These caught my eye because they are close to the cookies they make at The Grist Mill. I'm not sure if they add the milk chocolate chips and they use walnuts or no nuts at all. These cookies only lasted a day in our house.
Double Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
1/3 cup baking cocoa, unsweetened 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. salt 1 1/4 cup flour 1/2 cup butter, softened 2/3 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup sugar 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract 1 egg 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips 3/4 cup white chocolate chips 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
In mixing bowl combine cocoa, baking soda, salt and flour. Set aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars. Mix until creamy. Add in egg and vanilla.
Gradually add in dry ingredients. Mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Using cookie scoop drop 2 TB dough on cookie sheet or baking stone. Bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
After 5 minutes on cookie sheet, place on wire rack to cool.
Notes: We used Santa Rosa plums. Plums are pretty tart, so I would recommend a little more sugar than with other fruits. You can warm them in the oven too--140 degrees. Just remember to let fruit dry out completely and not to cook the fruit.
This is such a GREAT EASY recipe. I've never tried making my own guacamole---I've really been missing out :)
3 avocados, peeled, pitted and mashed 1/2 cup onions, diced 2 roma tomatoes, diced 1 lime, juiced 3 TB fresh cilantro, chopped just a sprinkle of garlic powder pinch of ground cayenne pepper salt to taste
Add all ingredients to mixing bowl and serve with chips or your favorite dish :)
