Tuesdays With Dorie – Chockablock Cookies

by Jessica on April 27, 2010

Chockablock Cookies

Need a solid cookie? One that doesn’t fall apart on you? That won’t melt at the turn of a knob? And doesn’t even drop a sweat on a 325 degree day? Then look no further. The Chockablock Cookie is for you! It’s packed with all kinds of yummy things: oatmeal, chocolate & butterscotch chips, chunky walnuts… and if you’re so inclined, coconut & dried fruit.

They didn’t even get their feelings hurt when B saw them and said, “Oooh, sausage balls!” Talk about a tough cookie. 😉

Hop on over to Mary’s site, Popsicles and Sandy Feet for the recipe and don’t forget to check out the other TWD bakers here!

Butterscotch chips – marking that down for the next batch. I loved these – more so than your ordinary kitchen sink cookies. Yours look perfectly chunky and blocky! (I have to look twice to see the sausage balls)…

They look great, fat and chunky! I added a bag of trail mix to mine!

Sounds like a good combo too! Yumm!

These are solid cookies, aren’t they?! I would love to try them with butterscotch chips. That sounds like a great variation.

I love that everyone is coming up with such unique versions of this cookie. It makes it a lot of fun to read about!

Cute about the sausage balls…and cute cookies as well, what’s not to like about a plate of these?

“they didn’t even get their feelings hurt when B saw them and ‘oooh, sausage balls!'” BWAHAHAHAHA!! Cookies have to have thick skin to survive these days…I’m glad to know Mr. Chockablock is making it ok! 😉

Hee.hee…I loved your post. I am still laughing about the sausage balls comment. Thanks for baking along with me.

I used butterscotch chips too.

They were fabulous.

Ooh, butterscotch sounds wonderful! Sausage balls…Ha! Sounds like something my husband would’ve said. 😉

No beauty contest winner I agree but they were delicious!


11 Leslie April 27, 2010 at 3:12 pm

Sausage balls?!? These cookies sound and look so much better than that!


12 Tia @ buttercreambarbie April 27, 2010 at 3:55 pm

they look wholesome, hearty and chewy. 🙂

Butterscotch chips! Nice move. Yummy.


14 Jessica April 27, 2010 at 6:53 pm

I almost included butterscotch chips and now I’m sad that I left them out! Well played 🙂


15 Joy April 27, 2010 at 7:06 pm

Your cookies are beautiful! Butterscotch chips, chocolate and walnuts sound fantastic!


16 Teanna April 27, 2010 at 7:17 pm

Hahaha this post was absolutely hysterical! Sausage balls!? haha!


17 Romaine April 27, 2010 at 9:34 pm

Sausage balls? LOL! And yes, this cold snap took me by surprise. But I could eat ice cream anytime.


18 Jill April 28, 2010 at 8:21 am

Sausage balls! Well they didn’t spread much, did they? I keep hearing about golden syrup but haven’t tried it. I’ll have to see if I can find it.


19 Linda April 28, 2010 at 7:42 pm

These cookies are homely (sausage balls…really???), but won me over with how they tasted. Loved your entertaining short and sweet post!


20 Amy April 29, 2010 at 8:06 am

These cookies really can accept just about any add-in, can’t they? I love your idea about butterscotch chips. Yum.


21 steph (whisk/spoon) April 29, 2010 at 1:01 pm

sausage balls! ha! your cookies were way tastier than sausage balls, i’m sure! 🙂


22 Tracey May 3, 2010 at 6:31 pm

Haha sausage balls – that’s too funny! I didn’t try these, but my mom absolutely loved them! I’ll have to make them again sometime and fill them with goodies I like – this time I included things I didn’t like so I wouldn’t be too tempted 🙂
