Compost Cookies

Compost cookies

I know what you are thinking… compost cookies?? Doesn’t sound very appetizing… but wait! Did you see that picture^^??  Pretzels, oats, chocolate, butterscotch, POTATO CHIPS!  These cookies are packed with tons of tasty add ins that make them perfectly salty and sweet!!  There is also some espresso powder in there!  When they bake, these cookies spread out nice and thin and each bite is a little different.  The key for big chunks of salty goodness is to throw in the chips and pretzels at the last minute while they are still whole so they just break up a little bit.  So next time you are at the store, throw some of these ingredients in your basket and get to work!  They are a crowd pleaser!  I know this because I brought them to our UCLA football tailgate this past weekend. Let me get you in on a secret.  If you are going to a football game, pack cookies for half time.  Just trust me.  You know you can’t go 4 quarters without eating something and you sure as heck don’t want to pay 10 bucks for kettle corn.  Bring cookies! You won’t be disappointed, and neither will anyone sitting around you!
