I was excited to receive the "Eat Like a Gilmore" cookbook for Christmas.
A gimlet. Macaroni and cheese in a jalapeno-chipotle cream sauce. Chilaquiles.
The pages and meals brought back so many memories!
Yesterday, I looked through the recipes I had marked to see if there was any dessert to try, and I wanted to sample the Rocky Road cookies. Remember when Rory took some Rocky Road cookies from Sookie's kitchen. That was the moment we all knew Rory liked Dean, because she didn't like Rocky Road cookies but they were Dean's favorite.
Seriously, how could anyone not like Rocky Road cookies? I had never had them before, but holy cow, yum.
If you like chocolate, these are for you.
Rocky Road Cookies
From "Eat Like a Gilmore" by Kristi Carlson, tweaked to my preferences and with directions shortened because I've been in a kitchen before and know "cookies are done once they turn a bit darker brown (not too brown!)"...
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cups chopped pecan
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars. Add cocoa, eggs and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Add flour and baking soda. Fold in pecans and chocolate chips.
Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, place rounded scoops onto cookie sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes. Place mini marshmallows in soft/warm cookies and let sit approximately five minutes to set. Place on cooling rack and cool fully before storing.
