Golden Grahams Cookies

22 Jun

This was a random find on my favorite site – Baking Bites. I never really had Golden Grahams as a kid (we were a Life and Cheerios family), but I was interested in how they would taste in a cookie. Um, they taste really good. I just finished dunking my second “test cookie” in a glass of cold milk and am wondering if I need a third just to be safe. My one change for future batches – I’d keep the cereal crumbs a bit larger.

Golden Grahams Cookies
makes about 4 doz/adapted from this recipe

Here’s what I used:
  • 1 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup smashed up Golden Grahams
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

Here’s what I did:

  1. Beat together butter and both sugars until smooth.
  2. Mix in egg, buttermilk and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and mix for about 2 minutes.
  5. By hand, mix in the oats, cereal and chocolate chips.
  6. Drop dough by one inch balls onto parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 11 – 13 minutes.
  8. Let cookies sit on baking sheet for a couple of minutes, and then move them over to a wire wrack to cool completely.
