This recipe was different in that it called for granola. I thought it sounded odd, but I went with it and trusted Dorie would lead me in the right direction. I followed the recipe to a T. I even found peanuts in my pantry and was able to use them after I had decided I wasn't going to buy them just for this recipe. It was fate. I did use dried cranberries in place of the raisins. I just like them better and that is how it was going to be!
The recipe came together really easily. I realized after I mixed the batter together that I had added two extra tablespoons of butter. I think that might explain why they spread a bit too much when baking, but it worked out okay. This cookie is really good. The combination of the granola, peanuts, almonds, cranberries and coconut was really good. I liked these cookies a lot the day they were baked and I swear they got a lot better the day after. They didn't last any longer than that since I took them into work.
I was a fan of this recipe and will be sure to make it again. Be sure to check out what the rest of the TWD clan thought of this recipe. There are so many of us now, it will probably be impossible for you to not see a few of these posts today!
