I really, really like coming up with cookies that are unexpected. It’s fun to see the reaction you get from someone when you tell them there are potato chips or a whole Oreo in a cookie. Yesterday, I broke out another novel creation: Joey’s. A friend’s love for chocolate covered raisins inspired me to put a twist on the traditional oatmeal raisin cookies…since when something is covered in chocolate, it’s better!
To make a Joey, take the dough for the Junk in the Trunk Cookies, and add in about a cup of rolled oats. To that, mix in some milk chocolate chips and milk chocolate covered raisins. When you’ve got your cookies scooped out and chilled, dip the top in some cinnamon sugar and bake them off at 330 for 10-15 minutes! You’ll end up with soft, sweet, oatmeal raisiny chocolately cookies, named after a wonderful individual 🙂
