Chocolate Skor Cookies

March 15, 2010

My husband told me that he was craving chocolate chip cookies. But I was bored with the traditional chocolate chip cookie. Same old, same old. When I came across this recipe from Sage, I just had to try it!  The cookie was a little different than I was used to, but it still turned out great. And I was surprised by how LITTLE calories and carbohydrates this cookie had. (Until I saw that it was per teaspoon, not per tablespoon–making a smaller cookie. Darn!) But still delicious and the perfect treat to our Sunday night–for tomorrow, now today I start “hell” week on my INSANITY workout!

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/4 cup rolled oats

1 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 SKOR bar, crushed (can substitute toffee bits if desired)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a blender or food processor, take 1/2 cup of rolled oats and blend until smooth. Place with remaining 3/4 cup of rolled oats in a large mixing bowl. (You can blend all of the oats if you don’t like the consistency of oats in your cookie). In the large mixing bowl, place flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until blended well and set aside for later use.

In a mixer bowl, place butter and sugars and cream together. Slowly add the one egg, and then the vanilla. Incorporate until well blended.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and blend until well incorporated.

Add Skor bar or toffee bits and chocolate chips and stir well.

Refrigerate dough for one hour, or until chilled if desired. (Not necessary, but it does make it easier to scoop the cookies).

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Cook for 6-8 minutes at 375 degrees or until lightly browned.

Enjoy!!
