Some may see trail mix as M&M’s with obstacles, but I see it as a tool to be used in the project of creativity. Because who eats plain trail mix? I myself only eat it as an ingredient in other desserts.:) These Triple Chip Trail Mix Cookies have a delicious crunchy sweetness. Not only that, but they are a true experience you have the saltiness of the peanut and cashew, the hardiness of the almond, the sweet flavors or three different chocolate chip flavors, and a nostalgic chocolate chip cookie texture. As you can see, we certainly enjoyed them! This episode of Delicious Food 101 features The Chef and La Critico.
The Chef: “La Critico, a word on these little delights?” La Critico: “These are pretty good cookies, that kind of flour is definitely better than all those wheat kinds.” The Chef: ” Well it is better tasting but probably not as good for you.” La Critico: “Well you never know about these things.”
The Ingredients: 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup softened butter, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 1 egg, 1/2 to 3/4 cup indulgent trail mix (the kind with peanut butter, white chocolate, and semi-sweet chips), additional 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 tsp. salt.
Using a hand mixer, cream together the egg, butter and sugar until crumbly. Alternate adding once cup of flour and half of the oil until both are used up. Fold in the trail mix and chocolate chips by hand. Spray two cookie pans with cooking spray, add half of the dough to each one. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
We like to make giant cookies…..:)
