Sounds kinda gross, huh?
I made these cookies this afternoon and they are delicious and unique. They've got that salty-sweet thing going on. I heard about this cookie from Anderson Cooper. (Love him!) He's been talking about them for three days since he's been sitting in for Regis on Live with Regis & Kelly. He gets them at a bakery in New York, but I went online and found a copycat recipe.
Makes approx. 30 good-sized cookies
1 stick butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons dry, used coffee grounds
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup roughly crushed potato chips
1/2 cup roughly crushed pretzels
1/2 cup roughly crushed Fritos
1/2 cup peanut butter or butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350º.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar, egg, coffee grounds, and vanilla.
In a medium bowl, combine the rest of ingredients. Using a spatula, fold together with the creamed ingredient until evenly distributed.
Scoop approx 2 Tbsp of batter and drop two inches apart onto a cookie sheet. Press dough down slightly with the palm of your hand.
Bake at 350º for 10-11 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for 2 minutes. Then place cookies on wire racks to cool.
Note: I used one cup of chocolate chips instead of half chocolate and half peanut butter or butterscotch because that’s all I had.
