This particular recipe is an adaptation of the Rocky cookie which tastes a bit more tropical and uses no peanut butter.
This cookie is hearty. It can be made with every ingredient in the list, or only a few of them. You can play with combinations for flavor such as pumpkin and walnut, or chocolate and cherries, or sunflower and raisin. Personally, I love to have a little bit of dark chocolate, lots of different fruits (prune, fig, raisin, cranberry), some wheat berries, a mixture of flours (barley and whole wheat)- a little bit of everything.
My favorite cookie of all time is the molasses cookie. It’s rich in spice: cinnamon, ginger, clove. It’s chewy and crackled on top, and has crunchy crystals of turbinado sugar sprinkled over it.
