Triple Nut Butter Bourbon Cookies

This is how inspiration works in my kitchen. Last night, it resulted in these cookies. I was dubious that the ingredients would actually result in a cookie, but they did!


One of my best friends emailed me this photo. Another one of his friends had scribbled this down at swim practice. The only words in the email: "If you want to try…they are soooooo goooooooood!!!" Okay. Sold.



So, I went to the website she references and found a slightly different recipe. Then, because I can't follow a recipe to save my life - well, I probably could to save my life - I slightly adapted it. I used three different kinds of nut butter, swapped out the vanilla for bourbon, and added hemp seeds.


Ingredients
  • 1/2 C bourbon pecan peanut butter (I bought mine at Mouth)
  • 1/2 C raw almond butter
  • 1/2 C raw peanut butter
  • 1/2 C honey (I used pine honey)
  • 1 T bourbon
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • ½ t baking soda
  • 2 T hemp seeds
  • 1 T instant coffee
  • 1/3 C semi-sweet chocolate chips



Procedure
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with silicone mats.

In a large bowl, mix nut butters, honey, bourbon, eggs, baking soda, hemp seeds, and instant coffee until smooth and well combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

Use a scoop and place the batter 1-1/2" apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Cook cookies on the sheet for 5 to 10 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool.


And there you have it - gluten-free, honey-sweetened cookies in less than 30 minutes. Sweet.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
