Its Saturday now and I'm only just getting round to putting up my post for this week's TWD. Its just been one of those weeks. You know, late nights at work and all.
So, its no surprise that this week's recipe was Granola Grabbers, which has been already been blogged about (on time, no less!) by so many other TWDers. Still, I thought I'd still put up my post since I did make the cookies.
Like many other TWDers, I was really looking forward to making these since its been such a long time since anyone picked a cookie recipe for us. The shortbread cookies near the beginning of TWD's existence, which was before I joined, could have been the last time. Having had too much, for now, of pies, tarts and other too rich desserts, I really liked the sound of this one. After all, with granola as a main ingredient, its got to be healthy right? :)
When I was taking my cookies out of the oven, I immediately noticed that mine looked different from the ones featured in Dorie's pictures (and from those of other TWD members). Its not only after I re-read the ingredient list that I realized I omitted the wheat germ and neglected to add in a substitute. As such, you'll see that my cookies spread out more than normal and were very thin and crispy around the edges. Still, the cookies were delicious and I was able to serve them to J, M's little brother, who was visiting from out of town. I loved them as all - in fact, I had some for breakfast this morning. Nothing like granola to start your day!
