Cookies Cookies, Peanut & Goji Berry Cookies! If you are following my Instagram and moreover my recent Instagram Stories, you know I’ve been on a cookie quest for the past week. I’ve been practicing making cookies we learned at class as well as working on some new recipes. And here’s a new one – texture wise it reminds of chocolate chip cookies but it’s slightly chewier and has lovely crunch from the peanuts. The tanginess of the goji berries gives the cookies a nice savoury taste inside the sweet cookie.
I used salted unshelled peanuts but the salt gets mixed in the batter and the peanuts in baked cookies taste more like natural unsalted peanuts. Thus I’ve simply listed ‘peanuts’ as the ingredients, leaving you the freedom to pick peanuts of your choice. Okay let’s not go NUTS over peanuts – like according to my husband I tend to do! He just told me today that he has never met anyone as passionate about peanuts like I am! Well I do love them but to put the statement in context – I was trying to convince him that the local company has changed the way they prepare their “fried peanuts” as they’ve suddenly got much darker and less salty, while for him (naturally) they were the same nuts!
Okay I may be nuts over nuts and all in for cookies this weekend… Hope you are all having a good, sweet weekend! And if you happen to be looking for new cookie recipe, here’s one you may want to try 🙂
