This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet: Chockablock Cookies. They're chocolate cookies sweetened with molasses, then chock full of chocolate chips, nuts, oats, and dried fruit!
I have to say that I wish I had seen the comments from the other bakers before I made these because I'm not really a big fan of shortening. Apparently a lot of bakers just used butter in place of the shortening without any problems. I would have preferred to have done that, but of course did not think to.
These cookies were just okay to me. I don't particularly care for chocolate cookies, so I think that was the main reason. The molasses and chocolate combination was just fine in my opinion (there were reservations among the group about this).
Thanks Mary, for hosting this week. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the TWD Blogroll, to see how everyone else enjoyed this sweet, chocolatey treat! Also, don't forget to enter my $100 gift card giveaway while you're here :)
