The Virtual Cookie Exchange-Show and Tell Time!

Good Morning Apron Goddesses. It's cookie time!! And it's simple. You make a cookie and share it here by putting your name on the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post! Be sure to post ingredients, cooking directions and any special tricks to make the cookies on your blog...

This is the Spellbinder cookie that I made, pictured below, while wearing my rooster and eggs apron. I found this cookie recipe at my friend Lesley's blog, Will Write For Food Slimfast Bars and Lean Cuisines.

It looks like a simple brown cookie with frosting, but let me assure you it is much, much more. Once you eat one, you will have to have two, then three, then four, and then you will have to lock these cookies away or you will eat the whole batch.

They are that addictive.

So why would you want to make these?

To torture those people you love. Why else??

Here's the recipe:


1.5 C Flour
1.5 tspn. baking powder
1 tspn. soda
0.5 tspn. salt
1 C brown sugar
1 C butter
1 egg
1 C oats
1 C coconut
1 C chopped pecans
0.5 C crushed cornflakes

Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and beat. Gradually mix in dry ingredients. Stir in oats, nuts, coconut, and cornflakes.

Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom of a glass cup and put crushed cornflakes on top and smash them into the cookie.

Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350.

After these cookies cool, you may choose to frost them with this:

4 T. melted butter
2 T. hot water
1 t. vanilla
2 C powdered sugar

There are some lucky folks in my reality cookie exchange cause they're getting a dozen of these in a tin to take home and horde for themselves...

Those are very delish and I am not a fan of coconut.

These sound like a lock and key would be in order around here. Can't wait to try them. My luck it will be this Spring. :(

Om nom nom! I bought everything I needed to make them the other day and I still haven't! I must rectify this situation!
