Granola grabbers...


At first I wasn't thrilled about these cookies, they just didn't sound like my kind of cookie! Boy was I wrong, these are really good and they were gone before I knew what happened. I can usually tell how good a cookie will be by how the raw dough tastes (yes I taste, more like eat, the dough), well.....I am suprised there was any dough to bake, LOL. The only change I made was to use macadamia nuts instead of peanuts because that is what I had on hand and since they were not salted I added 1/8 of a teaspoon more of salt to the recipe. I always use a #40 disher to make evenly sized cookies and got 40 cookies.

The baking time was accurate if I used my oven on convection mode and even with convection I rotated the sheets. My final sheet I used the regular baking mode and they needed about 4 more minutes. You don't want to over cook these (one cookie in the back corner was slightly over done) or they will become a bit crisp, which was not bad but I prefered the more chewy texture.
I let them cool for 2 minutes and then moved them to the cooling rack, hopeing they didn't take too long because they smelled sooooooo good!


Finally cool and my DH can't wait to try one; OK, we both want to try one or two or more.............. Thank you to Michelle of Bad Girl Baking for picking a winner!

Macadamia nuts, yum! I liked these too. I kept having to eat just one more... I took the rest into work where they vanished very quickly.
