Chocokablock Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. I made these cookies this morning. What a fun concoction of ingredients. In my rendition, I didn't use vegetable shortening in my cookies. I don't like those pesky transfats, and I always have plenty of butter on hand~"butta is better" says Julia Child. I think the molasses makes this cookie, they are the backbone of flavor, with the chocolate next. All the add ins I used are: pecan pieces, mixed raisins and dried cranberries, chocolate chips, and unsweetened coconut. I declare these cookies delicious!
