cranberries


Actually, they are supposed to be Chocolate CORNFLAKE Haystacks but we don’t have a lot of cereal in the pantry so I used CORN CHEX instead.  Dorie said we could change the recipe around because it is a “DIYer’s dream”.  Thank you, Dorie.  I changed a lot.  Not because I wanted to but because I didn’t get to the store this week.  WEATHER!!!

So let me show you my Chocolate Corn Chex Haystacks instead

I have been making Haystacks for years – the stove top kind – and usually with chocolate and peanut butter {Imagine these with chopped peanuts and PB chips!}.  They are some of The Man’s fave cookies.  He was happy when he saw these.

I did make a FEW subs.  I used Semi-Sweet chocolate instead of Milk Chocolate.  Dried Cranberries instead of Raisins {EWWWW!!}.  Chopped Almonds instead of Pecans.  Dorie said we could…..

GOOD STUFF!!

The recipe is from Dorie’s Cookies on page 174.

This week’s theme for Eating with Ellie is Apples.  We’ve been cooking with Ellie for so long that we, or at least I, are running out of yummy recipes in some categories.  Like apples.  I had planned to make the Apple Crisp from Comfort Food Fix but we were invited to a Church Supper and I made dessert and I still had some left so I had to make something LESS sweet and less like dessert.  Too many sweets in the house means trouble.

Enter Ellie’s Harvest Breakfast Cookies. These cookies are huge and more like a muffin in cookie form.

Each cookie uses almost 1/2 cup of batter so they are quite large.  And they are chock full of apples, cranberries blueberries {because I couldn’t find my cranberries} along with pecans and dried cranberries.  They are supposed to contain rolled oats as well.  I noticed my cup of oats on the counter just as I was putting the cookies in the oven.  oh, well.

They are sweet but not too sweet.  The only sweetener is 1/2 cup of Maple Syrup.  These are on the menu for breakfast in the morning.

The cookies are in Ellie’s you have it made.  page 45

More apples -> An Apple a Day…

We would love to have you join us for Eating with Ellie.  The themes are listed on the right of the Eating with Ellie page.  We don’t print the recipes.  We’d rather you bought Ellie’s books.  She has 6 out now.  And they are all good.
