When I have an opened bag of chocolate “laying around”, I need to look for ways to use it, especially when the chocolate is the “good stuff” (in this instance, Guittard).
While it has been way too hot for baking, the temperatures have moderated a bit, so this morning, I opened up my copy of Dorie Greenspan’s Baking from My Home to Yours, and discovered a perfect solution to my dilemma. If you don’t have this wonderful baking guide (I love the “Playing Around” ideas), the link will bring you to some purchasing options – mine would definitely tend toward supporting Independent Bookstores.
The addition of cinnamon to the batter makes for some pretty pleasant aromas while these cookies bake up. Fortunately, you won’t have too long a wait – 12 minutes tops.
The cookies can be found on page 75 and include the following ingredients:
- Flour, baking soda, salt
- Ground cinnamon
- Light brown sugar
- Bittersweet chocolate
- Eggs and
- Old fashioned oats.
