Brazil Nut Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 4-1/2 dozen
This recipe is perfect. I would change a thing: after they have hardened to dip the top side of the cookie into melted chocolate, then allow to cool.
This recipe is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing. No, the cookies aren't super sweet and they aren't meant to be. They have a great texture. Big hit with my family!
In my oven, these took 12-14 minutes, and they were soft and golden brown. I didn't think these were very sweet, but then again, I used unsweetened coconut rather than sweetened, so that could have been the difference. To sweeten it up a bit, I whipped up a powdered sugar and milk glaze and drizzled over the cookies. (Oh, and I accidentally put in 1/2 t of salt rather than 1/4 t, so that probably didn't help it make it any sweeter either!) Not my favorite cookie that I've ever made, but they won't go to waste :) I'd go three stars, yet several of the things were my fault, so I'll go four stars instead.
I tried these the other day. what a hit. everyone loved them. In my oven, I only needed 8 minutes and the bottoms were lightly browned.Yum
The Brazil nuts are a nice touch, but I'd add some flavor. Also I am wondering what kind of oven you're using. After trial and error I found that at 350 degrees F the cookies needed at least 22 minutes in the oven to come out crunchy.
Unusual and delicious. I made a variety of cookies, and of the lot these were the first gone.
