ariel's making ... coconut chocolate cookies
cookie consumption is on the rise at my house due to large amounts of studying for thee bar exam ;) but we try to keep it healthy ... well sort of. here's a batch that worked out well, made late one night.
chef sam has been making homemade vanilla extract -- so easy! bottle of cheap booze and some vanilla beans. the hardest part is waiting for it to be ready ...
for these scrumptious cookies, you'll need:
1 stick organic butter
1/2 c. organic brown sugar
1/2 c. organic molasses
1 T. homemade vanilla (if ya got it!)
1 organic egg
mix those together!
then add ...
1 c. organic whole wheat flour
1/2 c. organic shredded coconut
1/2 c. organic fair-trade coco powder
1/2 c. organic sunflower seeds
1/2 c. organic milk
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
whatever else sounds good -- throw that in too!
bake at 350* for about 5-10 minutes ... you'll know when they're done.
study sweet tooth -- conquered!
happy saturday sweeties!
