TWD: Chockablock Cookies

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie recipe is Chockablock Cookies chosen by Mary at Popsicles and Sandy Feet.

These cookies have a little bit of everything in them. I chose dried apricots, raisins, chocolate chips and pecans. Pretty much everything I had in my pantry. I'm a huge hater when it comes to molasses. I couldn't find this Lyle's Golden Syrup that everyone kept talking about, so I had to keep the molasses. I compromised though, and used 1/4 cup molasses, 1/4 cup honey.

I have to say. This is one of the weirdest cookies I've ever eaten. It doesn't have too much of a molasses taste, which is a great thing. I'm not too sure about the fruit in it, and they're a little sweet and odd textured. I suppose I'll eat another just to make sure they're OK to give out. It's like one of those cookies you keep eating just to figure it out. (Its torture).

Go to Mary's blog and check out the recipe, or buy the best baking book ever!


  1. They look really yummy! Im glad you like them even if they are weird!

  2. I finally found Lyle's Golden Syrup in the orgainc food section of my grocery store. Maybe they'll order it for you if you ask. The cookies look really good.
