OK, one more Halloween recipe for you. I have this chocolate chip cookie recipe. I don’t know where I got it but I think it might have come from a Mrs. Field’s cookbook.
They are actually called Chocolate Chip Treasure cookies. The recipe does not call for sugar or eggs! Isn’t that so weird?? You will see why though! These cookies have a great chewy texture that I just love.
For Halloween, I use half chocolate chips, half Reese’s Pieces. I LOVE them! And they are a super cute treat to take to friends in October!
Chocolate Chip Treasure Cookies
- 1 1/2 c. crushed graham cracker crumbs (Crush your own with a food processor or rolling pin or use the re-crushed ones. I recently bought an enormous bag of them at Smart and Final)
- 1/2 c. flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 c. softened butter
- 1 1/3 c. shredded coconut
- 2 c. chocolate chips
- 1 c. chopped walnuts (optional but soooo delicious!)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Heat oven to 375. Beat sweetened condensed milk and butter until smooth. Add vanilla. Mix in graham crumbs, flour, and baking powder. Add coconut, choc chips (or Reese’s Pieces) and nuts. Drop onto lightly greased baking sheet, or use parchment paper. Bake 9-10 minutes and cool on pan for 2-3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.
Did you know that ovens take MUCH longer to preheat than they say? Mine beeps to say it is preheated after about 10 minutes and it is no where close to the right temperature. Pick yourself up an oven thermometer and use it to make sure you are at the right temperature when baking and you will have much greater success!
