1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 cups
chopped pitted dates
Great recipe! I made some changes, but they are also delicious as-is. I reduced white sugar to 1/2 cup and they were still quite sweet (you could probably eliminate the white sugar all together if you wanted). I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and half white. I omitted the dates and added butterscotch chips. VERY TASTY!!
I scaled the recipe in half (and swapped chocolate chips for dates), and the first batch turned out terrible - I thought the dough looked too "creamy" but thought I'd try it anyway; they flattened out into a chewy-fall-apart pancake. Tasted good, but didn't look good at all. I added probably a 1/4 to 1/2 cup more flour to the dough I had left, and the next batch turned out beautiful and delicious. Wish I would have followed my instincts with the first batch! After I adjusted it they were great!
Excellent cookie. After reading the reviews I didn't add any white sugar at all. Turned out just right for us. I didn't have alot left in my cupboard so I used raisins in place of coconut and almonds in place of peacans. Would make again.
I would suggest trying these cookies, they sound unusual, but are very good.
Firstly, the 10 min time @ 325 takes too long, so I upped temp to 375. If you use sweetened coconut flakes then use 1/4 cup less sugar overall. And half the dates and add 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips. Its a good cookie, it takes a long time to cook 60 cookies, but its well worth it!
The wheat germ is subtle. I added chocolate chips. I made them twice within a couple of weeks to use up wheat germ that was about to expire. A nice chewy/crunchy oatmeal cookie with a twist.
My husband eats nothing with nuts or coconut in it - for 10 years I have not been able to trick him into trying them! He saw me put the nuts in these, but not the coconut, but they must have looked so good he was willing to try. He can't stop eating them now, even though I confessed to the coconut. Truly magical cookie!
these are very good. crisp and chewy. between the total 4 cups of coconut, pecans, dates, I Substituted 1c. coconut, 1.5cups pecans, 3/4cup raisins, and 3/4 cup chocolate chips. I also added 1/2 teaspn of cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg. THEY ARE KILLER! soooooooo good.
Yummy!! I left the dates out, but otherwise made it as called for. If you're not a sugar freak, they might be a bit too sweet, so you probably could leave out 1/4-1/2 cup sugar and they'd taste fine. I used a medium scoop to make my cookies and they turned out to be a nice size, but a little thin in the middle after they were finished.
