TWD: Granola Grabbers

I'm so excited....! My first post for Tuesdays with Dorie!!! This weeks recipe was Granola Grabber (page 82 of Baking: From my Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan).

I didn't receive the book on time, but was able to find the recipe online and made these cookies Sunday. At first I wasn't very enthusiastic about making the Granola Grabbers, as I am not a big fan of granola, but they turned out great!!!

Ofcourse I made some small changes in the recipe:

  • I used granola with fruit, because otherwise I wouldn't have had enough to make the cookies. The granola I used is from the brand Cruesli and is called Zomerzin, which has a watermelonflavour and contains pieces of kiwifruit, apple and cranberry.

  • I also used 3/8 cup golden raisins an 3/8 cup of cranberries instead of 3/4 cup raisins.

The grabbers were also a huge hit with my family, friends and co-workers.
Dad's verdict: 7 out of 10

Welcome to the TWD group. Good job. I bet there isn't a TWDer out there who didn't alter the recipe some how. And I bet there were as many different granolas as people making the cookies.
