When I ask people what their favorite cookie is they usually respond, “chocolate chip.” Chocolate chip cookies are great, one of my favorites, but they can be upstaged on occasion by a good oatmeal cookie. Our Chewy Trail Mix cookie is the perfect incarnation of an oatmeal cookie. It is what an oatmeal cookie should be. I start with butter, sugar, and honey, mix in some sunflower and pumpkin seeds, cashews, walnuts, raisins, and rolled oats. Then I roll the cookies in pumpkin seeds and bake them to chewy oatmeal goodness. Though all of the cookies we offer at Custom Catering, Private Chef, and Homemade Goods are outstanding, this is my favorite. This is for all of you oatmeal cookie lovers out there. Here are some photos designed to perk up your tastebuds.
These cookies are great by themselves with a tall glass of milk, or they can be used to make an interesting sundae. I used a Chewy Trail Mix cookie as a dessert base, draped it in caramel sauce, topped it with creamy mango ice cream and fresh ripe mango, and then topped it with whipped cream and chopped, roasted macadamia nuts. This was so good I had to have it two nights in a row. It was a great use for a great cookie.
