Now The Main Event
Big Foot Cookies
I developed this when I was an owner of a bakery
called "Two Tartes." There was a demand for a breakfast cookie
so this is the result. The ethnicity is decidedly American.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 T. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 t. salt
1 t. soda
2 cups crushed breakfast cereal -- I like to use Raisin Bran
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped
Cream sugars and butter, add eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
Combine dry ingredients, add to sugar/butter mixture. Hands work great
for this stage of mixing! Add cereal, nuts and fruit. Again, mix with hands.
Make giant cookies using anywhere from a half-cup to a full-cup measure.
Bake at 365 degrees for about twenty minutes.
