Growing up, the Mother always served balanced meals.
I would have been totally happy with the meat and starch and be done with it all.
I did eat my veggies because if I didn’t then I wouldn’t have gotten the dessert, and to me the meal is just the precursor to dessert…right?
Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet picked today’s TWD.
They are full of chocolate, coconut, oats and fruit.
Well, someone made them that way.
I made a ‘turtle’ version.
Pecans, butterscotch chips, and semi-sweet chips.
There is more add-ins than there is dough.
Which makes for a fabulously thick cookie with tons of flavor in every single bite.
I love these cookies.
I added in some vanilla, because I don’t make cookies without it, and I also used brown sugar instead of the molasses.
If you want to make the fruity version or the turtle version, go check out Mary’s blog.
I highly recommend my turtle version because fruit does not belong in cookies.
